PHILADELPHIA (February 29, 2024) – SEPTA is reminding Philadelphia Flower Show attendees that public transportation offers convenient travel to the Pennsylvania Convention Center without the hassles of traffic and parking. There will be extra service on Regional Rail, along with frequent transit options.

Travelling to the Philadelphia Flower Show

All Regional Rail trains stop at Jefferson Station, which is located on the lower level of the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Starting Saturday, March 2, SEPTA will provide additional Regional Rail trips.

  • On Saturdays and Sundays, from March 2 to March 3 and March 9 to March 10, extra trains will operate on the Chestnut Hill East, Fox Chase, Lansdale/Doylestown, Manayunk/Norristown, Media/Wawa, Paoli/Thorndale, and Warminster lines.
  • On weekdays, from March 4 to March 8, additional trains will be available on the Lansdale/Doylestown and Paoli/Thorndale lines.

There are also convenient transit options. The Market-Frankford Line, Broad Street Line, and the Trolley lines offer frequent service, stopping at 13th Street, one block from the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

Convenient Ways to Pay

Attendees are encouraged to load funds onto a SEPTA Key Card for ease of travel.

For buses, subways, and trolleys, customers can use contactless payment options like credit and debit cards and Apple, Google, and Samsung Pay.

On Regional Rail, passengers can buy fares on the train when traveling towards the city using cash or a credit or debit card. However, for trips leaving the city, passengers must purchase fares in advance to be able to access the waiting and boarding areas.

In addition to paying for your rides with the SEPTA Key Card or individual purchase of trips, SEPTA offers the following passes:

  • Neighborhood Flex Pass (buses, subways and trolleys, and Regional Rail up to Zone 2 Stations): $10, good for 10 trips

SEPTA’s new Multi-Rider feature is available for travel in all modes and allows up to five passengers traveling together to pay with a single SEPTA Key Card. To do this, the multiple-passenger option must be activated by calling (855) 567-3782.
