Public Transportation

There are many ways to get to our store via public transportation! Rittenhouse Needlepoint is conveniently located three blocks from the Market-Frankford Line (North of 13th Street Station). We are also about 3 blocks from the Broad Street Line (East of City Hall Station). Trolleys 10, 11, 13, 34 & 36 all stop at City Hall Station as well. Travelling right in front our store on Arch Street are SEPTA bus routes 48 & 61, and one block south of our store on Market Street are bus routes 17, 33, 38, 44, 78, 124 & 125. One block East of our store are bus routes 23, 45, 46, & 61.

All Regional Rail lines service Suburban Station located at 16th and JFK Boulevard, about four blocks from Rittenhouse Needlepoint. From Suburban Station, head North to Arch st, and walk East toward 12th st until you see the sidewalk sign board for Rittenhouse Needlepoint.

The Patco Speedline which comes in to the city from New Jersey stops at 13th & Locust. Walk North on 13th st. towards Arch st. Turn right onto Arch St, and walk East toward 12th st until you see the sidewalk sign board for Rittenhouse Needlepoint.

Street Parking is typically available on Arch st, unless there is a convention in town. The cost is 25 cents for 7½ minutes. Pay either at the meter (if there is one by your parking spot) or at a kiosk/pay station normally located in the middle of the block. Do NOT park illegally or let your meter expire because you will get a ticket. Philadelphia Parking Authority personnel regularly patrol this area and are relentless in their pursuit of parking violators.

We suggest that you use public transportation to reach Rittenhouse Needlepoint or walk. However, if you do decide to drive it might be a better idea to park your car in one of the many private garages located within one or two blocks of the store. The owners park their car at the Garage on the 1200 block of Arch st, but it is quite expensive.
