SEPTA's Regional Rail connects Center City Philadelphia to the various outlying neighborhoods. The Chestnut Hill East and Chestnut Hill West lines both service Germantown through to Chestnut Hill (20–30 minutes, depending on your stop), each following its respective side of Germantown Avenue. The trains run about every hour, more during rush hour. The Hill East runs the latest train into and out of the city. The Norristown line services Manayunk, and the train station is very convenient to the action.
