As part of SEPTA’s participation in the Ready.Set.Philly program and as a welcome-back to customers returning to office work, daily-use and monthly permit parking fees at SEPTA-operated station surface lots and parking garages remain suspended through December 31, 2022. The fees noted below are currently not in effect.
Many Regional Rail and Norristown High-Speed Line Stations, as well as several other locations, offer parking facilities for commuters. Three locations have parking garages.
Many stations are also located near municipal lots, which vary in cost. Commuters should look for signage at the station to confirm parking fees and regulations for individual lots.
For complete information about parking rules and regulations, see Tariff No 168, Supplement No. 8 (PDF). Our Parking Violations and Etiquette page contains information on how to appeal parking violations.
Most SEPTA lots have daily-use spaces that are striped and numbered. Riders should pull into the slot and deposit the parking fee. Only cash is accepted.
- Fern Rock Transportation Center: $2 daily
- Lansdale Parking Garage: $2 daily

Monthly Permit Parking
SEPTA offers monthly permit parking at many Regional Rail stations, guaranteeing commuters a reserved parking space at a station on a daily basis. Permits cost $32 monthly at Fern Rock Transportation Center and $25 per month at other locations.
Call (215) 580-6576 to obtain an application.
See the list of locations with lots for permit parking. Stations where permit parking is full may have a waiting list for permits.
Weekend and Holiday Parking
You must have a permit to park in a permit lot at all times, including weekends and holidays.
On weeknights, SEPTA allows overnight parking at most Regional Rail and Norristown High Speed Line (NHSL) stations and at the parking lots at Fern Rock Transportation Center and 69th Street Transportation Center.
Overnight parking is not permitted at some stations. See the list of locations where overnight parking is prohibited.
Daily-use parking rates apply at Fern Rock, 69th Street Terminal and most Regional Rail lots. Parking is free at the NHSL stations. For the parking garages, call for current rate information.
How to Pay for Overnight Parking
If you are parking in a lot with a coin slot box, place the payment in an envelope. The amount should equal the number of week days to be parked times the chargeable rate (weekends and holidays are free). The envelope should contain the following information:
- Parking space number
- Car description: make and license plate number
- The date you parked the vehicle and the date you will retrieve your vehicle (total number of days of your stay)
Place the envelope with your payment in the envelope slot located on the back of the coin slotbox.
- Norristown Transportation Center Parking Garage, (610) 272-1290
- Lansdale Parking Garage
The parking garages at these locations have been closed due to Covid. Parking at surface lots remains available to customers.
- Frankford Transportation Center Parking Garage, (215) 580-497
This is a self-service garage. Parking fees have been suspended due to Covid.
Most parking lots fill up early on weekday mornings. Many lots are full by 7:30 am.
If parking is full at a station, check nearby stations. Local stations are more likely to have spaces available.
SEPTA stations often have nearby non-SEPTA parking available through other transit services, municipalities, private owers, or streetside.
Consult a map for additional options not listed on this site. Free parking options are extremely limited.
