      • MASS TRANSIT
        • The Convention Center is one of the easiest and most convenient places in the city for taking mass transit. Jefferson Station is in the underground level of the Pennsylvania Convention Center for local and regional train access. The Convention Center is also a short walk from 13th Street Station (Market-Frankford Line & Subway/Surface Trolleys) and City Hall (Broad Street Line). Multiple Bus Routes also serve the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
          • BUS ROUTES
            • Routes 17, 23, 33, 38, 44 & 48
            • Routes 4, 16, 124 & 125 are within walking distance
          • SUBWAY LINES
            • Market-Frankford Line
              • The SEPTA Blue Line / Market-Frankford Line / "el" will take you right to the doorstep of the Convention Center. Just take the Blue Line to its 11th Street Station, disembark, and you're right there - just follow signs for the Convention Center.
            • Broad Street Line
              • Take the SEPTA Broad Street Subway/Orange Line to its City Hall station - which will take you to Broad and Market Streets. From there, if you'd like to walk, you can - it's only about two blocks to the Convention Center, east on Market Street.
          • REGIONAL RAIL LINES
            • If you are coming from an outlying neighborhood of the city, or the suburbs of Pennsylvania or New Jersey, the best way for you to get there is via SEPTA Regional Rail service, which takes you literally to the Convention Center. As a matter of fact, you won't even need to go outside the train station to get there! Nearly every inbound SEPTA Regional Rail train will be stopping at Market East Station - which is directly adjacent to the Convention Center, since it is located at 11th and Market Streets. Once you come up from your Market East platform, just follow the clearly marked signs reading "Pennsylvania Convention Center" - or ask of the SEPTA employees which way you should walk.  Just follow the signs for the Convention Center - you won't even need to go outside, and you're there.
