GETTING TO PHILADELPHIA


 

PHILADELPHIA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (PHL)

Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) is approximately a 15-20 minute drive from Penn's campus. We recommend the following methods to get from the airport to Penn:

  • Lady Liberty Shuttle ($10 PP)

  • Uber (price varies)

  • Lyft (price varies)

30TH STREET STATION (AMTRAK)

30th Street Station is located half a mile from Penn's campus and is the main Amtrak stop in Philadelphia. Conference attendees may book their tickets to and/or from the conference at www.amtrak.com. 

CHARTER BUS

Charter buses such as Megabus, BoltBus, and Greyhound all have stops in Philadelphia.  We recommend either Megabus or BoltBus as they are low cost options with stops right outside of 30th Street Station. The Greyhound stop is located in Center City at 11th and Filbert Street and is a 10 minute SEPTA ride from Penn's campus. For more information on SEPTA, visit www.septa.org.
