This was a convenient way to see more of Philly on a short day trip. We used the Phlash to hop off and on and various locations around town that we wanted to visit. We never... read more

A great way to get around the city to see museums and historical sites. $2 a ride or $5 for an all day pass. Bargain!

As a Center City resident, used to walking everywhere or taking the trolleys and subways, I don't have to use the Phlash that often, but I do anyway. When I'm at the art museum and need to get to the City Hall area or points further east, the Phlash is much easier than getting to the subway or walking, especially... More

For $5 a day per person. You can hop on and off the bus to see all of the major attractions. We didn't have to wait longer than 10 minutes for a bus to arrive. Great way to travel through Philadelphia

The Phlash is not quick, but they are convenient, cheap and air-conditioned. The driver was not uber-friendly, but he was efficient. The seats are tight, but serviceable. Make sure to pick up a free brochure so you have your stops figured out in advance as they have to stop quick in some spots due to traffic.

An inexpensive and free for seniors hop-on-hop-off bus that concentrates on the core of the historic, central city, and museum districts. A great deal!

This was a convenient way to see more of Philly on a short day trip. We used the Phlash to hop off and on and various locations around town that we wanted to visit. We never waited more than 10 minutes on a bus. Once, a bus filled before we could get on but the driver told us another bus... More

The buses were spotless and the varied amount of stops made this a must do in this city. $5 for all day? How you not do this.

Great way to get around Philly for only $5.00. And, it's free if you're over 65! We go on at stop 1 and the driver made sure to tell us when our stop was coming up.

The great purple bus loop route to a lot of major attractions in Philly. Just jump on and off where and when you see them coming down the street and jump off when you see an attraction you want to visit. Very simple to visit Philly attractions.

We took the Philly Phlash around Philadelphia all day in order to see various sights. It was a comfortable ride, and the way the seats were set up in the back (higher up) was unique and fun too. We took the regular bus on the way to the Please Touch Museum, and with all the stops it felt like it... More
