A SEPTA train ( R1 Airport Line ) runs between the Airport and the University City Station. The trip takes about 20 min. To get from the train station to our Physics Department, located in the David Rittenhouse Lab at 209 S. 33rd Street (the SE corner of 33rd and Walnut Streets), climb the stairs at the North end of the platform (i.e., near the front of the train). Walk one block to the West and make a right on 33rd Street. To reach the Penn Tower Hotel, located at Civic Center at 34th Street, take the stairs at the South end of the platform. The hotel is across the street.
Alternatively, a taxi from the airport takes about 20 minutes (non rush hour) and costs about $25.
