Charter Bus Services

University departments and organizations have access to charter bus programs operated by Penn Transit Services.

It's easy for your group to get a ride with Penn Transit by following these four steps or by calling 215-898-6931 for more information.

  1. Determine which of our charter bus vehicles is right for you.

  2. Check our charter bus rates.

  3. Review our cancellation fees and policies.

  4. Complete the online charter bus service reservation form and we will contact you to confirm your requests.


When Penn Transit Services does not have resources available to accommodate a charter request, we outsource the request to one of our exceptional charter vendors. Service charges will be at the vendor’s prevailing rates and a booking charge will be applied. A vendor may contact you to confirm or review your request details. The remainder of the booking will be managed by Penn Transit Services.

Penn Transit assesses the safety records of bus companies using a thorough, comprehensive review process and monitors the companies to ensure they continue to operate safely. We identify higher-quality motor carriers (those least likely to put passengers at risk), rather than reactively regulating a motor carrier after an adverse event. Penn Transit performs due diligence to help protect against liability. Motor Carriers are only selected after Penn Transit reviews a comprehensive Motor Carrier Report by the U.S. Department of Transportation. Penn Transit monitors all approved bus carriers on a consistent basis to ensure performance continues to meet Penn’s strict standards.
