23 will go through some tough neighborhoods between Temple and Center City, but it's a very busy line and I've never had a problem. Just curious though. Why not take the BSL? Waiting at Noble is ok, but it's a deadzone, especially later at night. There's also the BSL spur that connects Temple with Chinatown.

I can't say I have extensive experience with it. But it being 9pmish, I wouldn't worry too much. If we were talking 2am, that might be a different story.

Personally, I would walk over to City Hall station on the main BSL trunk and take a train to/from there. The frequencies and foot traffic will be higher. Route 23 should be fine too if you prefer to stay above ground or don't want to deal with a walk (or stairs). Both are safe during the day and at night around 9pm. Again, Noble is just a bit of a deadzone so it'll be quiet after 9pm.

The BSL is fine. Can't comment on on rt 23.

The PWD is going to start some water main replacements near Noble very soon so there may be detours wrt the rt 23. So taking the BSL might make the most sense.

Good to know. I'm glad they broke that route up. I mostly take the 45 now and it is MUCH better than it used to be.
