What about transportation?
The SEPTA is Philadelphia’s public transportation system, offering many options for smooth commuting both inside and out of Philadelphia. Your homestay will be convenient to a bus, train, or trolley for use during the day. After dark, you should travel with a friend, use a taxi, or use one of the many campus transportation services available through your university or program. Students should take advantage of free bus loops, door-to-door shuttles, and walking escort services provided by their universities.
Your host will carefully teach you the best transportation route from your homestay to your classes by taking you there on the first day. Your host is not responsible for providing transportation for you.
