Destination

Northern Liberties

Northern Liberties, located just north of Old City, is one of Philadelphia’s hippest neighborhoods. “NoLibs” began to see its urban renewal in the late 1990s when artists flooded the area. Since then, it has become a happening hangout full of art galleries, beer bars, tattoo parlors, and ethnic eateries. Today, the neighborhood continues to thrive, with artists and professionals alike calling Northern Liberties home.

There’s no shortage of things to do in NoLibs. Sip a local beer at Standard Tap, enjoy brunch at Café La Maude, or bowl the night away at North Bowl. Whatever you choose, it's sure to be a fun time.

How to get there

Hop SEPTA’s Market-Frankford Line to Spring Garden Station.

Fare

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.
