bus route is #76, which runs from Penn's Landing and the Independence
Hall area out along Market Street past City Hall to the museums and Fairmount
Park and costs only 50¢. All other bus and subway services require exact
fares of $1.60; day passes, which are also good for a ride to or
from the airport, go for $6. Bright purple PHLASH buses run a handy downtown
loop ($1.50 one way, $3 day pass; 215/474-5274). http://www.septa.org/
