No More Center City Shuttle
May 27, 2008, Volume 54, No. 34

Penn Transit has announced that the late night Center City Shuttle, a pilot project that began last November, has been discontinued as of the end of the 2007-2008 academic year. The Shuttle provided extended service between campus and Center City (past the current east boundary of 21st Street to Broad Street) during the hours of 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. Larry Bell, director of Penn Parking and Transportation said the shuttle service was ended due to low ridership levels. According to Mr. Bell, Penn Transit continues to monitor ridership levels to determine the best use of its resources as well as looking at additional ways to improve service. This past semester three new transit stops were added and additional improvements, such as new ultra low diesel buses and a new GPS tracking system, are planned for the coming months.
