Penn has negotiated an agreement with the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) to provide two types of commuter passes:
- TransPasses, for travel within the City of Philadelphia, and
- TrailPasses, for regional rail.
Full-time, benefits-eligible faculty and staff may purchase monthly passes or 10-trip tickets at a 10% discount through payroll deduction. The five-percent discount provided by SEPTA is matched by Penn's five-percent subsidy. Up to $265 of your monthly payroll deduction can be paid for through pre-tax deductions.
