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

This is by far the best deal in town. If you are not within walking distance of where you want to go, spend $2 per trip and hop on. The buses loop around the most visited sights. Better yet, spend $5 for a day pass and make this your itinerary, hopping off at someplace that looks interesting then back on... More

Phlash is a hop on, hop off bus tour around the major sights of the city. Senior citizens are free and adults are $5; a cheap price to pay for the luxury of being able to get on and off at 23 different stops throughout the city. You get a ticket that the drivers look at and/or punch as you... More

I do not usually get enthusiastic about a bus ride. In fact, I haven't had such a great time on a bus since high school! This is a great way to see Philadelphia. Leave the car parked for the day, or don't even bring it to town with you. One day tickets are $5.00 each. Unlimited on and off. Goes... More
