30th street station - rental car return

Hi,

does anybody know where to return an Alamo rental car? Pickup was in DC, so I don't know the place. WIll be there during morning rush, so it would be nice not to lame around too much.

Thanks,

G

You drive right into the station property and it's marked. Watch for signs. You'll drive down into the underground lot.

The underground lot is closed now due to construction. I believe the cars are returned to the Cira Center outdoor garage. I can give you directions, but I need to know what road you will be taking in.

As you get close to 30th Street, stay on the left as you will be making a left turn at the traffic light just after 30th Street Station. This is 29th Street AKA Schuylkill Ave. it does not show on Google Maps- it shows I-76, which is underneath 29th Street. After you make the left, stay in the center lane. After you go under the bridge, you will bear left onto Arch Street. You should see signs for the car rental return on the right. It all happens very fast, so go slow and ignore the horns. After you park the car, you need to use the pedestrian overpass to go onto 30th Street Station. Walk straight across the walkway, down the escalator, past the SEPTA train stairways, past the Dunkin Donuts and go down the ramp. As soon as you get to the bottom, the car rental offices are on your left.

Hi, I will be there on Monday 23rd June to collect a car from Alamo at midday and returning it the following Monday at 10am. Can you let me know if the underground garage is still closed and what the traffic is generally like at that time. I will be heading up and back the I76 towards King of Prussia (and further afield). Thanks

Traffic is usually no problem at those times. Not sure if the garage is open yet. I'll check this afternoon and post back this evening.
