Philly Phlash back in service

Listen

A transportation option for visiting Philadelphia tourists is back from winter hibernation.

The Philadelphia Phlash shuttle service started Thursday and will run through the end of the year said Independence Visitor’s Center head Jim Cuorado

“It stops at all the major attractions, it’s the quickest easiest and most convenient way for visitors locals and others to see all the attractions in the city.”

This is the 6th year that the Vistor’s Center has offered the shuttle service from the Zoo to the Delaware River.

“We were a little bit concerned with all of the events downtown and the detours we were not hitting the 15 minute mark so we added an additional vehicle to the loop.”

The cost is still $5 for all day service. It runs weekends only until May 1 and then goes seven days a week until Labor Day, then weekends through Thanksgiving and full time until new years
