About Our Network

The Departments of Transportation and Parking value the relationships they hold with several organizations throughout the community and the City of Philadelphia.  

Drexel University  - Penn Transit Services maintains a reciprocal arrangement with Drexel University so passengers from Penn may ride Drexel University's bus service and Drexel riders may utilize Penn Bus.  Both schools require passengers to board the buses with their valid institutional IDs so they may ride for free. 

Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) - On behalf of the University, Penn Transit works closely with HUP so employees from both organizations may ride these transit systems for free when passengers show the vehicle driver a valid institutional ID.  Also, Penn Parking works closely with HUP to ensure that HUP employees can participate in the University's pre-tax commuter parking program via payroll deduction. 

SEPTA - In collaboration with Penn Transit Services, SEPTA has opened its first-of-its-kind information center on a university campus. The SEPTA Travel Center @Penn, located in the Penn Bookstore at 3601 Walnut Street, is indicative of the dialogue between the transportation authority and Penn, exploring options within the integrated transit system available to the Penn community. Penn also is one of the partners which funds LUCY(r) (Loop Through University City), a service SEPTA operates within the University City District.  PennCard holders can ride LUCY for free.

University of the Sciences of Philadelphia - Complimentary Penn Transit bus and shuttle service is available to these neighboring university students when passengers show drivers their institutional ID.
