3 Ways the PPA Can Help You Get Through a SEPTA Strike

septa-train-390-304xx330-220-30-0.jpgWith the possibility of a SEPTA strike,  Regional Rail lines could halt as soon as Saturday and force many commuters to find alternate ways to travel to and from  the city.

What does this mean for Philadelphia? Likely, more cars on the roads and more drivers searching for parking spaces. Although meters will continue to be enforced throughout the strike, the Philadelphia Parking Authority has a few tips for managing the situation.

Car Pool: Regular train commuters should consider teaming up with their fellow riders to save gas and parking spaces. Park at your normal train station and ride into the city together. (And maybe play a few fun car games?)

Garage Parking: The PPA has a plethora of parking garages throughout Philadelphia. You can find out which ones are closest to your office by using our  parking locator. Enter your destination’s address into the form and find a safe, convenient place to leave your vehicle. And don’t forget to check out early bird pricing specials, if you’re the kind of person who likes to get to your desk in the wee hours of the morning.

Bike to Work: Squeeze in your workout while you commute—and Philadelphia is one the best places for riding your bicycle. Cyclist safety is a top priority for us so if you come across blocked bike lanes, contact us via Twitter using #UnblockBikeLanes.

The Philadelphia Parking Authority is committed to helping commuters. Don’t hesitate to contact us via Facebook or Twitter with questions about where to park during the SEPTA strike.
