PHLASH is Back!

PHLASH is Philadelphia's visitor friendly public transportation loop with 19 stops so you can see all that the city has to offer!

The Philly PHLASH is run by the Philadelphia Visitor Center Corporation. It’s a public transport system that allows visitors to travel along 19 stops in order to see attractions in Philadelphia. It’s super affordable, with tickets available per ride ($2), per day ($5), or a two day pass ($9, exclusively available online, and for 2 consecutive days), and children under 4 and seniors are FREE. SEPTA Key and Pass holders also ride PHLASH for free. PHLASH begins running on April 28 and runs daily through September 4, then Friday to Sunday from September 8 – December 24, and daily from December 26 – December 30 (No service on Thanksgiving or Christmas Day). PHLASH is wheelchair accessible and service dogs are welcome.



  • PHLASH runs every 15 minutes from 10 am – 6 pm, and until 9 pm on Friday nights.
  • Stops include family favorite spots such as Penn’s Landing, the Please Touch Museum, the Philadelphia Zoo, the Franklin Institute, Reading Terminal Market, the Barnes Foundation, and more!
  • We already told you how inexpensive it is!
  • See places and things you’ve always wanted to see but didn’t know how to get to if you’ve travelled in from the ‘burbs or out of town without having to drive and park in multiple places! PHLASH ticketholders also get discount parking at 5 PPA parking garages!
  • The PHLASH mobile site gives real time updates on the next arrival.
