Penn Bus West

Penn’s “cleaner, greener” buses are part of the University’s Sustainable Transportation Initiative to promote environmentally responsible commuting.

Sustainable Transportation

Penn’s campus is well served by an extensive network of subway, bus, regional rail, and trolley lines that are located around the campus where public transit stops are never more than a five-minute walk from any part of campus. Discounted passes for the Philadelphia and New Jersey transit systems are available to full-time Penn students, and to assist Penn faculty and staff commuters who choose to use public transportation, Penn offers discounted options and pre-tax benefits through a variety of programs.
