City Hall and 15th Street Stations


City Hall and 15th Street Stations provide a critical connection and serve as the center of SEPTA’s entire system. Rehabilitation of these facilities will make the City Hall Station on the B Line (Broad Street Line [B]) fully accessible, with improved connections to T Lines (Routes 10, 11, 13, 34, and 36) and the M Line (Market-Frankford Line [L]). Improvements to this transit facility will not only make it easier to use for everyone but will also improve safety and security and reduce ongoing maintenance cost.


The City Hall / 15th Street Stations project is being advanced in phases:

  • Dilworth Park Phase and 15th Street Station: Complete ✓
  • Interlocking Reconfiguration: Modification of Fairmount interlocking to allow for track outages necessary to complete project construction and provide for greater operational flexibility
  • Inter-Station Connections and City Hall Station structural work (underpinnings)
  • City Hall Station: Upgrades within City Hall Station including fitting out the elevator shaftways with elevators and new or renovated platforms, stairs, lighting and amenities


  • Installation of 14 new elevators and ramps to all levels of both stations, including new and wider ramped corridors
  • Improve passenger flow with reconfigured fare lines, wider stairs and railings, and more open areas on platforms and the 15th Street Mezzanine
  • Update station interiors and systems including new architectural finishes, signs, lighting, and public address systems
  • Provide structural repairs and upgrades, mechanical and natural ventilation and improvements to prevent water infiltration
