SEPTA Encourages City Residents to Use Transit for COVID-19 Vaccine Travel

New Maps Highlight Convenient & Frequent SEPTA Options for Mass Vaccine Sites

SEPTA is encouraging Philadelphia residents to take transit to their appointments at the City’s COVID-19 vaccination sites. To help them with their travels, SEPTA has developed new maps that highlight available services.

SEPTA offers convenient, frequent service to all five of the City’s mass vaccination sites. Over one million Philadelphia residents live within a convenient, one-seat ride on SEPTA to a vaccination site.

The Center City Vaccination Center, which opens on Wednesday, March 3, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, can be easily reached from neighborhoods throughout the city on multiple SEPTA transit modes. The Pennsylvania Convention Center is located within a couple blocks of stations along the Market-Frankford and Broad Street Lines, City Trolley routes and Regional Rail, and is served by multiple bus routes.

Please note: Philadelphia residents interested in receiving a vaccine must sign up using the City’s Vaccine Interest Form, available at: phila.gov/vaccineinterest. Those without internet access can call 3-1-1. There are no walk-up appointments.

SEPTA has several new resources available for planning trips to vaccine sites:

  • An interactive webmap shows the location of the five mass vaccination sites and the SEPTA services available to reach them.
  • A static Frequency Map highlighting the vaccine sites and available services.
  • SEPTA social media posts will include graphics of maps with zoom-in views of each vaccination site and details of SEPTA services for those locations.
  • Additional details on how to use SEPTA for travel to the Pennsylvania Convention Center site are posted on SEPTA’s COVID-19 microsite. Please click here for details.

“SEPTA joins the City in encouraging residents to register for a COVID-19 vaccine,” said SEPTA General Manager Leslie S. Richards. “When it is your turn for an appointment, SEPTA will be ready with convenient and frequent service options to get you there and back home.”

SEPTA also has trip planning tools that can help residents travel to neighborhood vaccine sites, as well as those in Delaware, Montgomery, Bucks and Chester counties. For more information, visit www.septa.org.
