Philadelphia's public transportation system is extensive. The subway is not as big as New York's or Boston's, but it'll get students anywhere they want to go and can be just as effective when coupled with the SEPTA regional rail lines or buses. Drexel is in an ideal location to take advantage of Philly's public transportation system. Its transit makes traveling around the city a whole lot easier, as it is how people get downtown or out of the city. SEPTA is convenient, but it has been cutting back its service.
Drexel is within one to two blocks of a subway entrance, both east and west of campus. The 30th Street Station, which has Amtrak and SEPTA regional rail trains, is only two blocks away. At two miles away, Greyhound is also extremely close. There is a trolley stop on campus and a taxi stand three blocks away. Bus stops are all over campus. Students can get wherever they want, and they'll learn all the routes in a snap. Prices for student transpasses are not that bad compared to what non-students pay. It really beats driving any day. Unfortunately, some routes close early, which can be inconvenient, but it doesn't seem to be too much of an issue with students. Drexel also assists by providing a free shuttle between the various campuses (Center City and Hahnemann), which students utilize frequently.
