Parking & Public Transportation
South Philadelphia has great public transportation options. There are two subway stops on Broad Street; the Tasker/Morris & Synder. The 23 bus runs 24 hours a day up & down 11th & 12th. It can take you down to Oregon Ave., through Center City to North Philadelphia & all the way down Germantown Ave. to Chestnut Hill should you want to make a day trip without your vehicle. As this is a typical South Philadelphia neighborhood with tight streets & limited parking options the boom in businesses has been a rough transition for residents of the neighborhood. Through neighborhood & civic involvement they came up with a weekend solution. ParkOps offers valet options on Passyunk Ave. on Thursday, Friday & Saturday nights. It is $8 with restaurant validation & $15 without validation. There are two stands: one is located at the Singing Fountain at 11th & Tasker & the other is located in front of El Zarape at 1648 E. Passyunk Avenue.
