Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA)—Philadelphia's mass transit system—operates a coordinated system of bus, subway, train, and trolley lines that cover all of Philadelphia and parts of the surrounding counties. Exact change ($2.50), a SEPTA Key, or a One-Day Pass is required. The SEPTA Travel Center @Penn, located in the Penn Bookstore, can help you to plan your trip.
