Locust St. Subway

Bright red paint makes a forceful statement for this PATCO station entrance in Center City Philadelphia.  The design speaks to the fact that this portion of the route has seen many decades of service.  

There are three levels of subway transit at 8th and Market.  The oldest, the Market-Frankfort Line, goes east-west.  The Broad-Ridge Spur, running north-south along 8th, terminates there.  Beneath that line is the Speedline.  Free transfers are not offered between the two systems, but one may buy reduced-fare access to the SEPTA lines.
