Penn Transit introduces Penn Bus North and other service changes

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

The following changes have been implemented:

  • 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. (The previous schedule was 5 p.m. to 12 Midnight.) Riders may follow the bus routes in real-time in the PennTransit Mobile
  • 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.Requests for shuttles can be made via the PennTransit Mobile

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.
