Getting Around

Public Transportation: Bus

Both Greyhound Lines and Martz Trailways service Scranton from a central downtown bus terminal known as the Lackawanna County Intermodal Transportation Center. This terminal is located on Lackawanna Avenue adjacent to the Park's main entrance at Cliff Street.

To walk to Steamtown NHS, exit the bus terminal onto Lackawanna Avenue. Turn right and walk east along Lackawanna Avenue until you reach Starbucks, which is at the intersection of Penn Avenue. Step inside the Marketplace at Steamtown mall and proceed to the Scranton Public Market (former Food Court) area on the second floor. There is a doorway to a ramp that will lead you into the park. This doorway is typically open from 9 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., except on Sundays, when it usually opens at 10:00 a.m. It will take less than 10 minutes to cross between the mall and the park.

NOTE: This ramp is mall property and may be closed during periods of inclement weather, the possibility of ice, or for other mall concerns. Steamtown NHS does not control access.The Marketplace at Steamtown can be reached at 570-343-3400.

If the ramp is closed, you can exit out of the Marketplace and continue to your right along Lackawanna Avenue until you reach the Washington Avenue intersection. Turn right on Washington Avenue and walk under the railroad bridge and past the Scranton Police station to Steamtowns NHS's open gate. Turn right through the gate and walk west along the road until you reach the Steamtown NHS museum complex (former roundhouse). Walking from Starbucks to the Steamtown NHS museum complex (former roundhouse) should take 15 to 20 minutes.
