Permits & Passes Information on Commuter Benefits

Penn supports discounts for public transportation use by faculty, staff, as well as postdoctoral researchers and fellows and students, including a recent benefit increase in the commuter discount.

The University's commuter programs accommodate a variety of circumstances and include discounted, pre-tax purchases of commuter passes and cards that can be used for the integrated network of transit systems that serve Penn's campus. Currently, full-time, eligible faculty, staff, and postdoctoral researchers and fellows can receive discounted commuter fares or cards. Penn also supports discounted commuter travel for full-time students on SEPTA and NJ Transit.
