Destination

Penn's Landing

Penn's Landing is a waterfront area of Center City Philadelphia along the Delaware River. Its name commemorates the landing of William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania in 1682. It hosts family-friendly attractions, concerts and events all year long.

How to get there

Penn’s Landing is a short walk from the 2nd Street stop on the Market-Frankford Line and is serviced by different bus routes.

Market-Frankford Line (Blue Line)

Bus Routes: 12, 21, 25, 33 & 42

Fare

One way fare on either the Market-Frankford Line or any bus is $2.50 cash. You must have exact change if paying the cashier or operator. Neither can make change. Quick Trips are available for the Market-Frankford Line from the Fare Kiosks located in the 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 and it works on buses. 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.
