Shuttles provide free transportation to and from campus Transit Stops and West Philadelphia, Center City, and Powelton Village, within defined boundaries. Penn Shuttles run in the evenings seven days a week, year round except for Penn-recognized holidays. Riders from Penn, University of the Sciences and University of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS) can use the shuttle services when they present their institutional ID card. Passengers may take shuttles from on-campus transit stops to off-campus locations and vice versa, and off-campus spots to another destination off campus. Penn Transit also offers limited on call shuttle and early morning service. For exact times and operations, visit Navigating Penn Transit. To use the service download the PennRides on Request app, which allows you to schedule a ride from your mobile device or call Penn Transit at 215-898-7433. Service may be adversely impacted due to circumstances such as inclement weather and construction.
