Our Mobile App Makes Planning Your Trip Easy

Penn Transit Riders can use the PennTransit Mobile app to plan their rides. The app provides the current location and estimated arrival times of all buses and shuttles. It also allows you to schedule a ride on our evening shuttles. All Penn Community members with PennKey credentials should download the app in order to submit a ride request.
