So, you prefer to travel on two wheels or your own two feet. We get that - and we can take you to some of the region’s greatest places to pedal, hike, climb, skate, and get in touch with nature. SEPTA lets you bring your bike along on Regional Rail lines, the Norristown High Speed Line, Market-Frankford Line, and Broad Street Line on weekdays except for during peak commute times and all day on Saturday, Sunday, and major holidays. Bikes are welcome on buses anytime.
