January 31, 2022

Cp route 21 1080x1920 st 1.31 snip

Route 21 is a bus route.

Route 21 starts in Upper Darby/West Philly at 69th Street Transportation Center - steps from Tower Theater. It runs east on Chestnut Street through University CityCenter City, and Old City until it reaches it's terminus - aka final destination -  Penn's Landing on the Delaware River Waterfront

Route 21 runs west on Walnut Street to 69th Street Transportation Center. 

One of the best parts of this Route is that it's a 15-15-5 route. That means - it runs every 15 minutes or less for at least 15 hours a day (6a-9p), 5 days a week. If you're going within that time period - the buses are running so frequently they aren't even listed on the schedule. You can see where it is in real time with TransitView - also available on the SEPTA App

It costs $2.50 cash (exact change required) to ride the bus - $2 if you have a SEPTA Key card with Travel Wallet and you can TRANSFER for FREE.
