Penn Transit Ridership Requirements

In addition to the display of a valid institutional identification card, all Penn Transit riders are required to display a valid “green” PennOpen Pass in a manner consistent with the current protocols for building-entry on Penn’s campus and as a means of reducing the risks of COVID-19.

Individuals who are not part of the University’s PennOpen Pass Program must either display their respective Institution’s valid Daily COVID Screening Pass or participate in a driver-conducted screening and offer their verbal attestations. Individuals who cannot display a "green pass" or respond “Yes” to any of the attestation criteria will not be allowed to ride in the vehicle. 

For information, medical questions, or technical support while using PennOpen Pass, please contact the PennOpen Pass Call Center at (215) 573-6355 or visit
