For more than a decade, UCD has helped facilitated transit for students and employees working in University City. Together with SEPTA, UCD operates the Loop through University City (LUCY) bus that carries hundreds of thousands of passengers from 30th Street Station to nearby jobs every year.

LUCY Shuttle



Due to a construction project at 34th & Walnut, SEPTA is temporarily discontinuing the 34th & Walnut LUCY “GOLD” stop until at least August 18, 2023.


Taking LUCY:
LUCY® is free to students of the University of Pennsylvania and employees of University of Pennsylvania, University of Pennsylvania Health System, University City Science Center, and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. All others can ride with Trans or TrailPass, transfers, or $2.50 bus fare. LUCY has a wheelchair lift and two wheelchair tie-downs per bus.


The LUCY® shuttle runs every 5 to 30 minutes from 6:10am to 7:00pm Monday through Friday, except major holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day.
