How Can I Get To Aqua Vitae Using Public Transportation?


By Train

Take any train to Suburban Station, and we’re less than a 3 minute walk away!  For a list of train schedules go to here.

By Subway

Both the Market Frankford Line and the Broad Street Line converge at the City Hall stop. Alternatively, this is known as 15th Street near Suburban Station and will be called that depending on the conductor.  We’re around a 3 minute walk away from it.

By Bus (From the Philadelphia/Metropolitan Area)

Because many buses will go to the center city/city hall area, the easiest way to find out how which bus to take would be by putting our address as a destination in google maps and then clicking the public transportation option (icon which looks like a train) when pressing directions.

By Bus (Out of State Travel)

Greyhound and most bus services (i.e. Bieber Tours) will all converge in Greyhound’s main Philadelphia Station.  We’re about a 10 minute walk away.  Bolt and Megabus will drop students off at 30th and Market, this a 15 minute walk from Aqua Vitae Institute, however, one can also take the train from either of the stations and be right out of Suburban station.
