Transportation

We strongly encourage using public transportation if possible.

Parking
We will be providing valet parking for our guests. Pull to the curb in front of the library and look for the guys in yellow polo shirts.

The valets will be leaving at the end of the night, so if you intend on staying out or you're in no condition to drive, make sure you get your key from them. You'll be able to get your car from the parking lot two blocks to the right of the library for no extra charge as long as you pick it up on Sunday.

If you insist on parking your car yourself, there are a number of metered parking spots in front of the building and on the surrounding blocks. There are four parking garages within two blocks of the library (click on the minus sign to zoom out and see more).

From New Jersey (PATCO)
Take the train to the last station (15th-16th & Locust Street), which is connected underground to the SEPTA Walnut-Locust station. Take the Broad Street Line to Race-Vine station and walk down Vine Street to the library at #1901.

From New York City (Amtrak)
The Keystone and Acela Express lines go directly from New York Penn Station (NYP) to Philadelphia 30th Street Station (PHL). From 30th Street Station take the Media/Elwyn (R3) Regional Rail line towards Center City to Suburban Station (the next stop). The Embassy Suites is two blocks north of that subway station.

Subway
The nearest stations are Race-Vine and 15th and Market. Click here for a clickable map of the subway system. Google Maps provides pretty good directions for using public transit (choose "by public transit" in the drop-down box).

Taxi
They're not as prevalent as they are in New York City, and they're not all bright yellow, but you should still be able to find a taxi on the street fairly easily.

Olde City Taxi: (215) 338-0838
Capital: (215) 235-2200
Quaker City Cab: (215) 728-8000
City Cab: (215) 492-6500
All City Taxi: (215) 467-6666
Yellow Cab: (267) 672-7391

Flying
If you're coming by plane you will of course want to fly into Philadelphia International Airport (PHL). The airport isn't large enough that there's a tram for traveling in between terminals, but walking from A to F is still no picnic so be cognizant of where you are and where you need to be picked up or dropped off.

A taxi from PHL to Center City will cost you $28.50. To travel into the city by train, take the R1 line, which will cost you $6.00 to Suburban Station, the closest regional rail station to the library.
