Say “aloha” to spring by purchasing SEPTA’s Independence Pass to travel to “Hawaii: Islands of Aloha”, the 2012 edition of the Philadelphia International Flower Show. The Flower Show will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center March 4-11. Discounted Flower Show tickets – $28 for adults and $15 for children ages 2-16 – are available at all major SEPTA Transit Sales Offices and Regional Rail Ticket Offices.
SEPTA’s “One Day Independence Pass” and “Family Independence Pass” offer riders convenient, economical and unlimited one-day travel on all SEPTA trains, trolleys and buses. The Flower Show is open Sunday, March 4 from 8 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.; Monday-Friday, March 5-9 from 10 a.m.-9:30 p.m.; Saturday, March 10 from 8 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.; and Sunday, March 11 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Showgoers can beat the morning and evening commuter crowds by traveling to the Convention Center before and after rush hour. Independence Passes are not valid on Regional Rail trains arriving to Center City before 9:30 a.m. on weekdays.
The One Day Independence Pass costs $11 per person. The $28 Family Independence Pass provides unlimited travel for one family of up to five people, traveling together on any one day, on all regularly scheduled SEPTA service (at least one person, but no more than two, must be 18 years of age or older). While additional fees apply on Regional Rail travel to and from Trenton and West Trenton, NJ, passengers still save when purchasing Independence Passes over individual rail tickets.
Passes can be purchased in advance – they are not activated until the month and date they are punched by a SEPTA operator, cashier or conductor. Independence Passes are sold at all SEPTA Regional Rail Ticket Offices, SEPTA Sales Offices, the Transit Gift Store and SEPTA Sales Office at 1234 Market Street and online. Independence Passes can also be purchased on board SEPTA Regional Rail trains.
