parking & public transportation

This is a highly residential neighborhood so parking is pretty scarce but not impossible to find. There is non metered & permitted parking all over the neighborhood as well as a few private parking lots. These are best found through word of mouth or you could try Best Parking. Septa bus routes 7, 32, 43 & 48 service the neighborhood & for a blast from the past the trolley on Girard Avenue is still in service. Check out septa.org for more information.
