Getting to Penn 오시는 길
If you plan on flying in, the closest airports and transportation information are listed below.
Coming to Penn from the Philadelphia Airport: We recommend using a taxi ($32 flat rate plus extra charges for each additional passenger) or a rideshare service from the airport to get to University City, where you will find Penn and the Sheraton Philadelphia University City Hotel. This is particularly recommended after dark. Alternatively, you can take the Airport Regional Rail Line and get off at either Penn Medicine Station or William H. Gray III 30th Street Station. The cost is $6.75 if you purchase a Quick Trip using cash, credit, or a debit card from the SEPTA Key Fare Kiosk located at each Airport Line Terminal Stop. Fare can also be purchased onboard the train for $8 in cash or by credit card.
Shuttle Service from JFK to Philly: A shuttle service operates daily (12:40 PM everyday and 11:50 PM three times per day) from JFK Airport #1 and downtown Philadelphia, with a one-way fare of $70. The trip duration is approximately 2.5 to 3 hours. Please get off at the Chinatown, PA stop, and take a taxi or use a rideshare service to get to the Penn campus or your hotel. To secure your spot, please make a reservation here, as availability is limited.
