Jefferson makes commuting to class easy and accessible. In fact, 82% of Jefferson students choose to commute from neighborhoods throughout the city or areas outside Philadelphia. (If you are looking for off-campus housing in the city, check out the Housing Office’s Off-campus Alternatives page.)

Wherever you’re coming from, the Commuter Services Office can help you get to campus. The CSO provides information and savings on mass transit and parking to Jefferson students. Information includes maps and schedules of bus and rail line routes; while savings include discounts on SEPTA, New Jersey Transit and PATCO; as well as discounts with selected local parking garages.

Mass transit items, provided at discount prices include:


SEPTA Tokens (10-packs); Monthly Trans/Trail Passes (by mail); and 10-Trip Regional Rail Tickets


PATCO Freedom Pass

NJ Transit

NJ Transit One-way Tickets and Monthly Passes (by mail)


Discounted Campus Area Parking: Restricted daily and limited monthly parking is available at several locations on or near campus.
