New Penn Transit Campus Loop

September 13, 2011, Volume 58, No. 03

Penn Transit is supporting the opening of Penn Park by launching its new Campus Loop service. The Campus Loop will operate from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, from a new pick up at the near Levy Tennis Pavilion to all transit stops on campus. For a list of transit stops please visit www.upenn.edu/transportation

Additionally, from 6 p.m. until the park closes at midnight, seven days a week Penn Park is served on demand by the Penn Shuttle. Passengers may call (215) 898-RIDE to request a pick up if a vehicle is not already waiting in the lot. Penn Transit will have two vehicles dedicated to serving the Penn Park area after 6 p.m. 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. To request a Walking Escort you would call (215) 898-9255 (WALK).

An additional shuttle van has also been added to the Penn Transit route in response to an anticipated increase in ridership due to the opening of Weiss Pavilion and the new Information Commons study center at Franklin Field. The additional shuttle is designed to decrease wait times for riders.
