In addition to the College-operated shuttle, community members can access shopping and attraction throughout the broader Philadelphia region through SEPTA's public transit system or by biking and walking. The Sustainability Office maintains an alternative transportation guide to help community members take advantage of the full range of transportation options available on campus and off.
Swarthmore College partners with ZipCar to provide car sharing as a convenient transportation alternative to bringing a car to campus. The ZipCars are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for students, faculty, and staff ages 18 and older, as well as members of the local community ages 21 and over.
