Philadelphia International Airport (PHL) serves arrivals and departures for international and domestic flights. It is located just 7 miles (11 km) from the center of Philadelphia.. Ground transportation at Philadelphia International Airport is readily available and includes rail, bus, taxis, and shuttle bus and limousine services.  Philadelphia is laid out in a basic grid pattern.  SEPTA operates a large fleet of buses throughout the city and suburbs.  The city is served by two subway lines: the Market-Frankford (east-west) and Broad Street (north-south).  Because the streets are narrow in Center City, traffic is often congested and travel on foot or by taxi is recommended.  There are historical tours, which include Victorian trolleys, double-decker buses, and horse-drawn carriages.
