Drexel Station at 30th Street


Drexel Station at 30th Street is one of SEPTA’s most heavily used transit hubs. The station is served by the M Line (Market-Frankford Line [L]), all T Lines (Routes 10, 11, 13, 34, and 36), multiple bus routes, and provides convenient connections to Regional Rail at the nearby William H. Gray III 30th Street Station. Reconstruction of the Drexel Station at 30th Street provides a modern transit gateway to the SEPTA system for employees, students and visitors traveling to and from Drexel University, University City, and Schuylkill Yards. The project was initiated to modernize station infrastructure, increase capacity and improve circulation between transportation modes, and support the world-class development underway in the district. It was funded in part through a $15 million U.S. Department of Transportation Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development (BUILD) Grant and $34.2 million in Pennsylvania Department of Transportation funding, which was made possible by Pennsylvania Act 89.
