Commuting Tips For the Corporate Traveler in Northwest Philadelphia

Posted by Nicholas Cerminara on 07/14/16

If you’re staying in our lovely Royal Suites for a business trip, there’s a sizable chance that you might not know how to get around the area. The Royal Athena’s location in Bala Cynwyd, as well as its proximity to Manayunk, ensures that our corporate housing rentals will have access to public transportation and other forms of transportation if need be.

Here are a few of those options:

  1. SEPTA Regional Rail

If you need to head into Center City for a meeting, you can always take a train. Hop on the Cynwyd line at the Bala Station at Bala and City Avenues or the Manayunk/Norristown line located at 117 Carson Street and ride down to Suburban Station at 16th Street and JFK Boulevard. Both stations are a short drive or walk from The Royal Athena. It’s an easy, no-hassle way to get to the city. Fare prices and other information can be found here.

  1. SEPTA Bus

Taking a bus is a great way to get exactly where you need to be. The routes are a little less direct than the train and there will be more stops, but if you’re unsure about finding your way around the area by walking, the bus is a fantastic option.

There are bus routes that take you to Center City, around the Manayunk/Roxborough area and everywhere in between, all conveniently located just minutes from The Royal Athena. You can find more information about bus routes right here.

  1. Uber or Lyft

If the bus is too confusing and the train won’t get you where you need to be, Uber and Lyft are both affordable and easy options for transportation. All you have to do is download the app, select your destination and then wait for your driver to pick you up. Your credit card is linked to the account so you don’t have to worry about paying your driver when you leave.

Getting around a city you don’t know very well can be a bit intimidating at first, but it’ll surely turn out to be much easier than you originally thought.

Public transportation makes getting where you want to go convenient and stress-free. When you stay in the Royal Suites, you’re minutes away from the stations. Check out more information on the Royal Suites right here.
