Taking Public Transportation to/from Philadelphia International Airport

One of my favorite things about Philadelphia International Airport is how easy and inexpensive it is to get to and from the airport on public transportation.

SEPTA train service departs Philadelphia’s city center every 30 minutes between 4:18am and 11:19pm everyday, and returns every 30 minutes from 5:09am until 12:09am.

One-way tickets cost $8 on weekends and $7 on weekday evenings and weekends.

The train runs between the airport and Temple University, with five stops in between including Market East Station, near the Old City, and 30th Street Station, which offers easy connections to Amtrak.
