This week, we're exploring the Route 62! SEPTA's Route 62 is a City Bus that runs from 9th & Market in Center City to the Andorra neighborhood of Philadelphia. On a typical weekday, this route carries 614 passengers and travels 132 miles.
Until 2006, the Route 62 was called the Route 61 Express. The Route 62 only makes ten trips each day, with five in the morning to Center City and five in the evening back to Andorra. This route helps serve riders in Manayunk and Roxborough who commute to Center City during the week.
The Route 62 connects with the Manayunk/Norristown Line and nine separate bus routes at Wissahickon Station. Riders can also connect with the Broad Street Line, Market-Frankford Line, and a number of bus and trolley routes in Center City.
If you live Manayunk or Roxborough and need a ride to Center City each day, the Route 62 may be the bus for you!
