Center City Transportation

Philadelphia has been ranked as one of the most walkable cities in the nation. Thanks to founder William Penn’s smart and simple grid street design, the heart of the city is easy to navigate. The Schuylkill and Delaware rivers border Center City’s 25 blocks on the west and east. Keep in mind that, south of Market Street, streets running east and west are named after trees while north and south streets are numbered.
