Great, cheap way to get around to all the main tourist spots. Hop on and off all day, regular service - was a lifesaver for us as we ended up sightseeing in the rain - this saved soggy walking feet!

We used this on Friday, Saturday and Sunday to get around central Philly especially when our legs got tired. Seniors ride for free! It covered most of the parts of Philadelphia we wanted to visit and got us back to our hotel. Brilliant.

I think this is the most conveint way to get around the city to many of the attractions. Your come by public transportation or park your car and don't have to hassle with parking. Free for Seniors.
