tation

Temple University Station is in the Center City fare zone, although the station itself is located in North Philadelphia.

The station was opened in 1993 and was built for $37 million as part of SEPTA's RailWorks project to rebuild the Reading Railroad viaduct in North Philadelphia. The station sits on the Reading side of the system and almost all trains stop here. The new station replaced the older Temple University station at Columbia Avenue, which is now Cecil B. Moore Avenue in memory of Philadelphia civil rights leader Cecil B. Moore. The old station had low-level platforms at the outside of the tracks, and was served by only a few peak hour trains.

There is now a small ticket kiosk located at the base of the stairs on the street level.

Temple University maintains a security kiosk at street level. Stairways and two elevators lead up to the high-level platforms at track level. There are two island platforms serving four tracks. Each platform is 380 feet (115.824 meters) long, long enough to platform four cars with only the end doors being used. The platforms have a canopy overhead and some wind-breaking walls, but are otherwise exposed to the weather.

This station is located approximately 2.6 track miles from Suburban Station. In FY 2005, Temple University station was the fourth busiest station in SEPTA's Regional Rail system, with 2,448 average total weekday boardings and 2,593 average weekday alightings.
