It looks good, but a few things could be a bit clearer:

* It's only a left turn onto 42nd street if you're coming from Center
  City.  I'm coming from the west and I have to turn right.

* The Market-Frankford Line is the "El", not the "L".

* You might want to mention that you need to physically leave 30th
  St. Station and walk across the street to catch the trolleys.

* While I also call them "trolleys", Septa refers to the lines that
  run from 30th St. to USP either "subway-surface lines" or "the green
  line".  I don't believe you can find the word "trolley" printed
  anywhere inside either of the Septa stations at 30th St.[1]


1. Well, OK, maybe on a printed schedule for Route 100, 101, or 102
   (which actually ARE called trolleys), but good luck finding any of
   them in 30th St. Station, either. :)
