Now we just gotta convince SEPTA to stop trains there....
Philadelphia Zoo getting parking garage, still seeks train stop - Philadelphia Business Journal
The zoo plans a 683-space parking garage near 34th and Girard, west of the zoo grounds.
The garage, which will cost $24 million, will be paid for by federal, state and city funds, as well as investment by the zoo itself.
It will be part of the Centennial District Intermodal Transportation Center and offer access to SEPTA transportation. The zoo is serviced by SEPTA’s Route 15 trolley and the Route 38 bus.
Vikram H. Dewan, the zoo’s president and CEO, has also been an advocate of having a train stop at the zoo, but there is no timeline for such an addition or even any certainty that such a plan would be approved.
