Amtrak 30th Street Station

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.

How to get there

Trains from Amtrak, SEPTA and New Jersey Transit serve the station. SEPTA's Market-Frankford Line and SEPTA's Subway/Surface Lines stop less than a half block from the southwest entrance to 30th Street Station. A number of the SEPTA's bus lines include stops at the station on their routes.

Fare

Center City Philadelphia Regional Rail: Click here for fare info.

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!]. You can purchase one-way Quick Trip tickets for travel at any MFL/BSL station for use at any MFL/BSL station. This allows you the flexibility to buy two Quick Trips at one time – one for the start of your trip, and the second for your return trip. All Quick Trip tickets must be used on the date of purchase. Quick Trips do not work on the bus.

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.
