Philadelphia's historic 30th Street Station, one of America's finest transportation hubs has been a Philadelphia landmark since it's opening in 1933. Noted for its neoclassical structure and intricately patterned high ceilings, travertine walls and Tennessee Marble floors, this magnificent building is a destination in and of itself. With access to both SEPTA and Amtrak, getting around locally and regionally has never been easier.

The food court offers a wide array of options, such as: Cosi, Wendy’s, Dunkin Donuts, Subway, and Taco Bell. There is also the option to have a sit-down dinner at the Bridgewater’s Pub restaurant located inside the station. A new addition to the food choices is The Porch at 30th Street Station which offers a variety of mobile food vendors and is open Mondays and Fridays from 11:30 am – 2:30 pm during June, July, and August.

CONSTRUCTION – Effective until Fall 2013
A project to renovate the 30th Street side of the Philadelphia station (West Plaza) and parking deck is underway. Please keep in mind and allow for extra time while traveling.
