Subway from Airport to City Center?

How bad is Philadelphia's subway? From reading reviews it seems that most people try to avoid it.

Is it okay to take the subway from the airport to city center at night?

RBCal,

I'm not sure which reviews you're reading... but while some subway stops could use some refurbishment, the ones that visitors use are generally clean and safe. That said, street wisdom and common sense are useful in the late evenings.

However, to get from the airport to Center City, you would actually take the R1 Regional Rail commuter train. Depending on which of the three downtown stops you would need to depart from, it's a 20-30 minute ride. Check out www.septa.org for more information.
