FAQs Transit FAQs

In order to better serve its patrons, Penn Transit has installed GPS/AVL tracking in all Penn buses and shuttles. This system allows riders to obtain real-time information about the locations and estimated times of arrival (ETA) of Penn Transit vehicles operating on fixed routes. PennRides en Route also features traffic alerts, such as emergency route or schedule changes.

You can access PennRides en Route from the free mobile app called PennRides on Request, which is available for download from the App Store and Google Play.  You will need your PennKey and password to log in.  Once you reach the landing page, click the 'en Route' tab at the bottom of your screen to view the information about the fixed-route transit services.  

PennRides en Route information is also accessible at www.upenn.edu/pennrides via any web browser.
