Getting There

Getting here on SEPTA is easy! There is a subway stop - Broad Street Line - NRG Station - at the corner of Broad & Pattison (0.3 miles to Show entrance; approximate 5-7 minute walk). Not up for walking? A Courtesy Shuttle will stop at and pick-up guests at NRG Station on the north side of Pattison Avenue. 

If you're starting your trip on Regional Rail - we recommend you ride to Suburban Station and transfer to the Broad Street Line at City Hall Station (look for signs). You will ride the Broad Street Line south to NRG Station (last stop). 

Broad Street Line trains run every 10 minutes (or less) on weekends and every 8 minutes (or less) on weekdays. Express service will run. Click here for station stops. 

Looking to stay above ground and/or for less of a walk? The Route 4 runs from Center City/Suburban Station to Broad & Pattison and the Route 17 stops at both Jefferson Station and Suburban Station and drops you one block from the Show entrance - but check the schedule - not all Route 17 buses go to Broad & Pattison.

Click here for our comprehensive Guide to Ride.

Before you head out, remember to check System Status for a complete view of the SEPTA system to see if service is running according to schedule or if there is any alteration in service. Also - download the Official SEPTA App for iPhone and Android (it's free!).

Fare Info

There are many ways to get here on SEPTA, there are also many ways to pay. Click here to learn which fare is best for you.

Kids eleven years and younger ride free.

For easy travel to-and-from the show on transit (Bus, Trolley, Broad Street Line, Market-Frankford Line, and Norristown High Speed Line), remember to load your SEPTA Key card or purchase a Quick Trip (Broad Street and Market-Frankford Line only) from a Fare Kiosk. If you opt for a Quick Trip, your best bet is to purchase two tickets before the show to avoid lines on the way home.

During the Flower Show, the One Day Independence Pass is valid on all SEPTA modes all day long (10 trips max). The One Day Independence Pass costs $13 per person and is available on the SEPTA Key card. You can load an Independence Pass on to a SEPTA Key card at a Regional Rail Station Fare Kiosk (you'll find these at Jefferson Station, 30th Street Station, Suburban Station, Temple University Station, University City Station, and at Philadelphia International Airport), SEPTA Transit/Regional Rail Sales or Ticket Window, or online at septakey.org. And yes - a SEPTA Key card initially costs $4.95 but when you register the card at septakey.org, $4.95 is added to the card's Travel Wallet which you can use for future rides or towards the purchase of another pass.

Please note - you can no longer buy a One Day Independence Pass on board the train.

Please note, if you are heading home after the show from Jefferson or Suburban Station, you need to pre purchase your ticket in order to move through the turnstiles before proceeding to the train platform. Accepted fares include a SEPTA Key card preloaded with a June TrailPass, June TransPass (weekends only), or One Day Independence Pass, SEPTA Key Senior ID Card/Current driver’s license with magnetic stripe (customers 65+ only), SEPTA Key Reduced Fare Card, a legacy/paper June TrailPass, legacy/paper June TransPass (weekends only), and SEPTA Regional Rail Quick Trip.
