Getting From the Airport

Since many Philadelphia roads have not been cleared, we recommend taking the SEPTA Regional Rail. The regional rail stops at every airport terminal and provides direct service to 30th Street Station (5 Blocks from SLA) and Suburban Station (1 Block from The Windsor and other parkway hotels). Service operates half-hourly from the airport and, weather permitting, is scheduled to take 21 minutes from Terminal E to 30th Street Station and 26 minutes to Suburban Station. The fare is $7 per person from the Airport to Center City.

To get more information on the status of airport train, please see SEPTA TrainView or TrainView Mobile and look for Airport in the origination column.

To get more information on riding the airport train, please see our Travel Directions page.
