What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Public Transport to the Ethical Society:
Philadelphia Ethical Society, 1906 Rittenhouse Square, Philadephia, PA 19103 -> SEPTA Trip Planner
Vehicle Parking for Events at the Ethical Society:
On Sunday there is free parking on certain streets near the Ethical Society until 10 pm, as specified on permits you can obtain in the Society’s office and place so visible through your front and back windows.
However at other times, street parking around the Ethical Society is very difficult. You might find a space at a meter some blocks away, if you’re lucky and not in a rush.
