Penn Evening Shuttles

Penn Transit operates an evening shuttle service, which provides transportation free of charge to and from campus pick-up locations to any address within the service boundaries. Passengers need to show their PennCards to board the shuttle and may bring up to two guests with them. Penn Evening Shuttles operate year-round except for University holidays.

Shuttle Basics

Here are some tips for riding our shuttles:

  • All rides to and from campus must use designated pick-up and drop-off locations. If using the app, these locations are conveniently pre-defined in the app's drop-down menu. Or consult our transit map.
  • A valid ride request for on-campus travel must be for at least a 1/2 mile.
  • Penn's Division of Public Safety's Walking Escort Service is also available to Transit Riders.
  • For more details on how to use Penn Transit Services, view Riders Rights and Responsibilities.
