What types of transportation are available in Philadelphia?

Students can ride the Penn Bus, which goes to downtown Philadelphia, for free with their PennCards. Regular city buses and trolleys are easy to use and cost $2.25 cash or $1.80 for a token. Taxis run regularly up and down Spruce and Walnut Streets, but are more expensive. It is also customary to tip a taxi driver 15% - 20% of the fare.
