Getting Around Conference Sites

Public transportation to/from the airport

Septa - Airport line

$6 each way. The train stops directly at the airport. Use the machine to buy your ticket before you board!! There's a surcharge if you pay on the train.

Restaurants and other food options

Reading Terminal Market

An excellent place just across the street from the conference center. You can buy groceries or a meal. It has Amish foods and various other kinds of food. Some of my favorite vendors are: Famous 4th Street Cookie Company, Nanee's Kitchen (Indian), Iovine's produce.

It has free wireless, but it is ALWAYS crowded!
