30th Street Station, which was first opened in 1933, is the main railroad station in Philadelphia and is a major stop on Amtrak's Northeast and Keystone Corridors. This train station is one of the busiest intercity passenger railroad facilities in the United States. It is within walking distance of various attractions in West Philadelphia, notably the University of Pennsylvania, CHOP, Drexel University, and the University City Science Center, all in University City.

Fare

Center City Philadelphia Regional Rail: A one-way ticket purchased from a conductor is $6.00 on weekdays and $5.00 on weekends. If you buy your ticket from a SEPTA sales office beforehand, the fare is $5.25 on weekdays and $4.25 on weekends.

Transit: 

One-way fare is $2.50 cash. You must have exact change if paying the cashier. The cashier cannot make change. Quick Trips are available from the Fare Kiosks located at all Broad Street and Market-Frankford Line stations. The kiosks accept credit/debit cards and cash [no exact change needed!]. Note, a Quick Trip is a one-way ticket, good for 24 hours. It can only be used at the station from which it is purchased.

Your best bet is a SEPTA Key Card. Like a Quick Trip, it is also available from the Fare Kiosks but unlike a Quick Trip, it is reloadable and reusable. The SEPTA Key Travel Wallet allows you to pay as you go and you'll receive a discount for each ride ($2.00 versus the $2.50 cash fare). You must load a minimum of $10 [which will get you 5 rides]. Funds in your Travel Wallet can only be used to pay for one (1) person. It cannot be tapped multiple times to pay for anyone traveling with you.  

Best part – your SEPTA Key gets you more than just a ride. Flash it for discounts on food, drink, museums, sports, shops and more. Click here for a full list of Partners.
