this is a cheap ride through philly. it goes form the art museum to the liberty bell and round trip has about 22 stops. It only cost about $2 and saves you a long walk. I like to walk from Art Museum to Liberty Bell and take the Phlash just for the return trip.

For $5.00, you can ride to most of the tourist spots near central Philadelphia (free to seniors). They stop at convenient locations, and your day-pass allows you unlimited rides. Robert was our driver for one of our rides, and he gave a nice narrative of what were seeing or about to see.

I highly recommend this bus. Buy the $5.00 all day pass. You can hop and on everywhere. The driver was so funny, talkative and helpful. You can ask them places or things to do and they will tell you. The also explained some historical sites along the route. They are very professional as they keep repeating of what is the... More

This bus ride was very convenient. Especially liked that seniors ride for free. Can be used all day with a pass.

OMG I had fun on this bus. I don't know if the drivers are wild or if its Philly traffic but I swear we almost rear ended everyone. And this was with multiple drivers. Regardless I love that they were on time and made it a point to stay that way. To pay $5 for an all day pass was... More

The Philly Phlash makes it very easy to travel through Philadelphia, with convenient stops throughout the Old City and downtown, including the museum district and Fairmount Park. Pick up the schedule at the Visitors Center. It does not run all year, but during tourist season and the Christmas season. Free of charge to seniors, and reasonably priced for all.

The Phlash buses cost $2 per ride or $5 for all day, with seniors and young children free. The drivers are helpful about showing you where to go, but there is no commentary about the sites either at stops or on the way between stops. The BigBus costs a lot more but is much more educational.

We showed our Medicare cards and spent three days traveling all over the city for free. This is remarkable!
