Getting to Callowhill

Callowhill affords its visitors extreme walkability — it takes no time at all to get from here straight into Center City.

Cycling is another popular mode of transportation, with bike lanes along 13th and Spring Garden. Those who don’t own their own bike can rent one via Indego, the city’s bike share system. There is a convenient docking station right at Broad and Spring Garden streets.

SEPTA’s Broad Street line also provides an easy in, dropping off at both Spring Garden and Vine streets.
