Penn Transit Announces New Bus Route and Service Enhancements

Penn Transit has introduced several adjustments to its services for the 2023-2024 Academic Year:

  • Introducing Penn Bus North, a new fixed-route pilot program traveling west on Chestnut Street, between 30th and 48th Streets, and north to Powelton Avenue with dedicated transit stops.
  • A revised bus schedule that accommodates times of the highest rider demand by beginning one hour earlier: All bus routes, including the new Penn Bus North, will operate Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. –  Midnight. 
  • Penn’s Evening Shuttle service has an adjusted start time starting 90 minutes later, running Monday – Friday 7:30 p.m. – 3 a.m., and weekends 6 p.m. – 3 a.m.

There are no changes to the existing bus routes including Penn Bus West, Penn Bus East, Penn FMC Shuttle, and the Penn-Drexel Bus Share program. Penn Accessible Transit will remain available 7 a.m. – 3 p.m., 7 days per week. For more information about Penn Transit’s buses, shuttles, and other services, visit
