WeDriveU, a National Express company, was selected by the University of Pennsylvania to support the Penn Transit Services and Parking team’s on-demand transportation operation. Penn’s program serves faculty, staff, students, and guests from Penn, St. Joseph’s University, and the University of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS).

WeDriveU is providing more than 40 full-time drivers for the university’s fleet of vans and cutaway buses, in addition to a dedicated management team and maintenance assistants. The contract expands the initial agreement which began in 2021 when WeDriveU first began supplementing Penn Transit’s services.

“WeDriveU has demonstrated the ability to hire, train, and effectively manage a fully-staffed team of professional, safety certified drivers in an extremely competitive market, while developing creative mobility strategies to improve the campus experience,” said Dr. Michael Bernhardt, director, Penn Transit Services.

Penn’s on-demand shuttles ease mobility by connecting the urban campus population to buildings and facilities, local services, and public transit stops, including Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority rail stations and subway and trolley services. The service complements Penn’s wide range of commuter options, including discounted public transit passes, ridesharing services like vanpools, bike sharing, bike commuter options, and campus parking programs.
