Parking

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.

Daily-Use Parking

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
  • 69th Street Terminal: $2 daily
  • Most other stations: $1 daily

See the list of locations with lots for daily-use parking.

Weekend and Holiday Parking

On weekends (Saturday and Sunday up until 1 am on Monday), parking is free at Regional Rail daily-use lots only.

Parking is also free on the following major holidays:

  • New Year's Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas

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.

Overnight Parking

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.
