Plan Your Trip

As a major East Coast hub, we're easy to reach by plane, train, taxi and car. In fact, 40 percent of the U.S. population lives within a day's drive of the Convention Center.

  • Car: We're just a few minutes from I-95, which runs north and south, making it a breezy 1.5 hours from New York and 2.5 hours from Washington, D.C.
  • Amtrak Rail Transportation: Amtrak operates trains from 30th Street Station with high-speed service along the Northeast Corridor and points north, east, west and south. For schedules, fares and other information, visit, or call 1-800-USA-RAIL.
  • Philadelphia International Airport: Twenty-eight airlines (three of which are low-fare carriers) operate nearly 600 daily, nonstop flights from 120 cities, including 60 daily and seasonal flights from 36 international destinations.
  • SEPTA Rail Line: SEPTA Rail Lines service the entire Philadelphia Region. Jefferson Station is connected to the Convention Center.
    • The Regional High Speed Airport Line connects Philadelphia International Airport directly to downtown Philadelphia in just 20 minutes. (To get to the Pennsylvania Convention Center, you're going to want to disembark at Jefferson Station.)
    • From Amtrak's 30th Street Station take the SEPTA Regional Rail to the Convention Center. A regional rail train departs every few minutes. With your Amtrak ticket, the ride to center City is free.
    • Other SEPTA Regional Rail Lines can shuttle you throughout the region. Please visit or call 215-580-7800.
  • Taxicabs: Walking around Philadelphia is fun and easy. However, if you are in a hurry or suddenly the weather changes, taxicabs are plentiful and relatively inexpensive.
