Greater Philadelphia residents tired of the gloomy grays of winter can fast forward to spring – using SEPTA – when they visit the 2018 Philadelphia International Flower Show, “Wonders of Water” at the Pennsylvania Convention Center March 3 through 11.

SEPTA makes it easy for riders to experience the beauty of the Flower Show: the One Day Independence Pass and Family Independence Pass offer customers convenient, economical and unlimited one-day travel on all SEPTA trains, trolleys and buses.

The $30 Family Independence Pass provides unlimited travel for one family of up to five people, traveling together on any one day, on all regularly scheduled SEPTA service (at least one person, but no more than two, must be 18 years of age or older).
