Hi,
Can someone provide detailed stops and routes/rail lines to get me from Woodcrest High Speedline station (PATCO) to University City, PA? I need to get the Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia. Thank you so much!

Unless i'm not understanding something that would make this difficult, just take PATCO to Philadelphia. Get off at the 8th and Market Station. Switch to the Market line. Then get off at 30th/34th/40th street in University city.

Get off PATCO as close to 12th and Filbert/Market St as possible. Walk to Market East Station at 12th and Filbert/Market

Catch the Blue Line subway OR a hop a regional rail train - R1, R2 or R3 and get off at University City and walk to to CHOP. I think the regional rail may even be free because its in the same zone or if the conductor doesn't collect tickets yet...taking a chance on that one of course...

Here's yet another idea.

Get off PATCO at 8th Street, transfer to the eastbound Blue Line "El" and take that to 13th, walk downstairs to the Green Line where you can take any trolley (except the #10) to 37th and Spruce. From there, you'll be about a 10 minute walk (shorter than from 40th and Market) to CHOP.

Thanks for your assistance. I just took PATCO to 8th & Market, then rode the Blue line "the L", to 34th & Market. Not too bad, just about a 10min walk over to CHOP!

Good and keep Tone's suggestion in mind for bad weather days.

Next time take Patco to last stop (16th & Locust), walk one block north to Walnut and catch a 42 bus which will leave you at CHOP front door.

On SEPTA's plan my trip - the bus is the 21 (which for the OP also runs down Walnut Street (and up Chestnut for the return).
