Penn supports discounts for public transportation use by faculty, students and staff
Penn's compact urban campus is well served by an extensive network of subway, bus, regional rail, and trolley lines that are located around the campus where public transit stops are never more than a five-minute walk from any part of campus.
Penn offers several options for discounted travel via SEPTA, PATCO, NJ Transit and Amtrak. All discounts for full-time faculty and staff are provided via payroll deduction and are pre-taxed up to $265 per month.
