How to get to Franklin Mills Mall in Philly via mass transit?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. Holiday greetings to all for great Christmas/New Years season.

 

Just a question? I been to Franklin Mills mall in Philadelphia several times but always got there via a car. I may want to this Saturday weather permitting go down there on a railfan trip to shop.

 

I gone alot to Downtown(central Philly)via either Greyhound bus or SEPTA R-7's/NJ Transit trains combo. I am looking at SPTA maps and notice no direct or easy bus service at stations near Franklin Mills like Bridesburg station, etc.

 

My question is that is there a way to take a SEPTA bus somewhere along the R-7 line at stations in Northeast Philly or Bucks county without having to go downtown and come back?

 

In other words the question is what's easiest way to get to Franklin Mills Mall from NYC/Trenton area?

 

Thanks in advance.

There are two "easy" ways to get there from an R7 station, only problem is, there is a long layover at the stations.

 

You could take the R7 to Bristol and change to the 129, or you can take the R7 to Torresdale and take the 84.

 

Another option would be to take the R7 to Bridesburg and take the 25, 73, or 84 to Frankford Transit Center and change to the 20 (the 20 runs more frequently)

Depends on where you are starting, from Center city? Get on the EL at 8th going eastbound to frankford. Get off at the last stop at frankford Transportion Center then take the 20 to Franklin Mills.

 

 

Long trip but you pass less.

Yeah, that really is the most economical plan. Especially if one is taking Greyhound. Jump in on the el at 11th Street and take it to Frankford.

Well you also got the new Route 50, which is a limited stop express route that makes only 3 stops along the boulevard and goes local to Franklin Mills (and Phila Park)

Another convenience is that it also runs on Sundays by the half hour

You could go to cornwells heights, & grab a taxi, its like a 3 to 5 minute trip. Call 30 minutes ahead to avoid waiting too long there at the station.

 

Amtrak stops there too.

 

If you want me to ask for a price quote on the taxi i can.
