New Penn Park Transit Services

October 10, 2011

Penn Transit is supporting the opening of Penn Park by launching the new Campus Loop Bus. The Campus Loop Bus will operate from 8 am to 6 pm Monday through Friday, from all transit stops on campus to a new pickup point outside Levy Tennis Pavilion. Buses will run on 20-minute intervals.

Additionally, from 6 pm until the park closes at midnight seven days a week Penn Park is served on demand by the Penn Shuttle. Passengers will call 898-RIDE to request a pick up if a vehicle is not already waiting at the pickup point outside Levy Tennis Pavilion. Penn Transit will have two vehicles dedicated to serving the Penn Park area after 6 pm. Passengers will be taken from the park to the nearest transit stop, which is 34th and Walnut. From that location, riders can access regular Penn Transit bus and shuttle services. Walking Escorts are also available by calling 215-898-WALK (9255).
