Philadelphia - Philly Phlash

Hi all,

Am heading to Philadelphia in a couple of weeks for a weekend - thought I'd take the Philly Phlash to get around - any thoughts on this or do you think the local bus/subway service is a better bet?

thanks

I think the Philly Phlash is awesome. Only $1 (the bus I think is like $2). The few times I rode it I had absolutely no complaints.

I think it's a bus that does a tour of major sites in Philadelphia.

The Phlash is a bus that makes a loop of the historic district. You pay one fee for the day and can hop on and off to see the sites.

Here's info on the Phlash:

www.gophila.com/phlash

The cost is $4 for an all-day pass. It stops at all the tourist sites in and near the Center City area -- but nowhere else. If you want to visit only those sites, it is you best bet.

An all-day pass on Septa is $5.50, and will permit you to ride busses, subways, and trolleys within the city. If you're not staying where the Phlash goes, or want to see things where it doesn't go, a Septa day pass might be advantgeous. Tokens for Septa rides are $1.30 each.

This is info I just received today from gophila.com
"Jump aboard the Phlash!
All Season Long
It's the best way to get around town. For only $1, the Phlash will take you through a 19-stop Center City loop, running daily from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. Serving 8,000 hotel rooms and more than 50 major attractions from Penn's Landing to the Philadelphia Museum of Art, there's no easier way to visit everything in Philly.

Best dollar you'll ever spend.
