Finding a good spot in Philly is a challenge these days — demand for apartments is steadily rising — and it doesn't help that all those projects you see under construction don't quite align with your timeline to get a new place.
In the majority of neighborhoods surrounding Center City, most Philly residents rely on either a car or their legs to get to work, but there's a sizable share of the city's population that prioritizes public transportation. That data is analyzed fully in a report released this week by the Center City District examining how the region utilizes our transit system.
If you're the sort of person who swears by SEPTA's subway system, whether it's the Broad Street or Market-Frankford Line (or both), a new tool from Trulia will help you figure out the best place to match your price with proximity to a nearby station.
The prices shown on the map below reflect the median price within a fifteen-minute walk of each of these stations. When you click on a station, you can see a map of available properties in the area.
Trulia's tool is now available in Philadelphia, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Boston.
