Philly Phlash 2015 Launch

Various locations
10 a.m. – 6 p.m., FREE

The city’s signature purple bus kicks off another season with free rides through Sunday! And new this year, the service, which runs to 22 stops throughout Philly, plans to operate past Labor Day, so you can still get to the zoo, Penn’s Landing, Eastern State Penitentiary and more on the cheap.
