What is a rushbus?
A fixed-route, public transportation peak-hour service provided by TMA
Bucks that is designed to connect workers from existing transportation
services to nearby employers.
How much does it cost?
The fare is $1.00 per trip. SEPTA Trail and Trans passes are
also valid on rushbus shuttles. Additionally, if your employer is a
member of TMA Bucks, you are entitled to ride the rushbus that
services your employer FREE of charge. Ask your supervisor or human
resources department if you aren't sure whether or not your company is a
member of TMA Bucks.
Can anyone ride a rushbus?
Yes. All rushbuses are a public service and function like any other
public bus. You may choose to wait at a scheduled stop to board
the bus or flag the bus down along the route. It doesn't matter
what you're using a rushbus to do -- if the
schedule and route meets your needs, then you are welcome and encouraged
When does the rushbus operate?
Monday through Friday except on the following holidays: New Year's Day,
Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas
What if my SEPTA Regional Rail
line is running late?
Each rushbus is scheduled to meet
specific SEPTA Regional Rail trains. If the train that a Bristol,
Newtown, Richboro-Warminster or Street Road rushbus is scheduled to meet
is running late, those rushbuses will wait for that train to arrive,
regardless of how late the train is.
Do I need to schedule pickups
on rushbus services?
No. All rushbus shuttles are public,
fixed-route services that operate on a firm schedule. Use a rushbus as you would any other public bus. It
is as simple as waiting
for the bus to arrive at your stop or flagging it down along the route.
Why do rushbuses run only at
certain times and not all day?
The rushbus shuttles are intended as a means
of accessing jobs and are funded by a federal grant. Therefore, each
service is customized around the shift times of local employers to make
the most efficient use of the grant funds.

No. Please contact
