The Fishtown section of Philadelphia, named for its history as a commercial fishing hub, is located north of Girard along the Delaware River. In recent years, Fishtown has seen an influx of bars, restaurants, music venues, studios, and galleries as a result of Philly’s young creative class moving in. These newcomers’ integration and collaboration with the neighborhood’s long-time residents and families has given Fishtown a one-of-a-kind flare.

Whether its eating, drinking, seeing a show, or just enjoying the outdoors, there are countless things to see and do in Fishtown. Some the most popular destinations include La Colombe’s flagship café, Pizzeria Beddia, Johnny Brenda’s, and Penn Treaty Park.

How to get there

Hop SEPTA's Market-Frankford Line or Route 15 Trolley to Girard Avenue.


One way fare is $2.25 cash. You must have exact change if paying the cashier or operator. The cashier/operator 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. Quick Trips do not work on the trolley.

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 ($1.80 versus the $2.25 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.
