PHILADELPHIA SERVICE

We have recently made changes to our Philadelphia Schedule. In March we began service to Philadelphia to accommodate those displaced by the sudden closure of Bieber Transportation. This service consisted of two runs, to and from Philly, Monday through Friday.

Due to low passenger counts, we have reduced that service to one Southbound run and one Northbound run, Monday  through Friday. Our Operations Team will continue to monitor these runs and make sensible decisions to meet our customers’ needs.

This schedule became effective Friday, April 26, and is Southbound Run #701 with a first stop at Lehigh Valley International Airport (ABE) at 5:15 a.m. Our Northbound Run #702 picks up passengers beginning at 10th Street between Filbert & Market at approximately 4:15 p.m.

MARTZ TRAILWAYS AGREEMENT

Effective Monday, May 6, 2019, Trans-Bridge Lines and Martz Trailways began cross-honoring tickets for Philadelphia Service.

All One-Way and Round-Trip tickets may be presented to the motorcoach driver for acceptance. Those with already deeply discounted Commuter Books will need to hand their motorcoach driver their ticket and a $5.00 cash surcharge.

Please note that drivers do not carry cash and cannot make change, so you will want to be sure to have exact change.

Note: Trans-Bridge continues to work with Fullington Trailways on a proposed similar agreement. Details will be released as more information becomes available.

PHILLY FARE INCREASE

It has become necessary for Trans-Bridge Lines to slightly increase the price of the Philadelphia Fares in order to maintain those runs.

Fares from Quakertown will be: $20 – One-Way;
$145 - 10 Trips; $270 – 20 Trips; $375 – 30 Trips.

From Lehigh Valley fares will be: $21 – One-Way;
$150 – 10 Trips; $280 – 20 Trips; $390 – 30 Trips.

This fare increase became effective Monday, May 6, 2019.

CURRENT FARES

As one would expect, fuel is one of our biggest resource costs. The cost of fuel ultimately factors into the cost of ticket fares. For this reason, we closely monitor the cost of fuel during the month and make adjustments to raise or lower fares based on that cost.

Current trends show fuel prices have risen. Therefore, for the month of May, there will be a slight increase in the price of fares.

SAFETY WEEK 2019

For the past 25 years, Trans-Bridge Lines has always held a Safety Day. This year Trans-Bridge Lines has created the first ever Safety Week.

The purpose of this week was to express our dedication for our employees, passengers, and community by demonstrating the importance of staying safe. During the week, Trans-Bridge had several safety session meetings with keynote speakers and members of our management team touched on many important topics. Employees actively participated in a mock fire drill and practiced the Hands-Only method of CPR on dummies. 

Employees were invited to participate in a slogan contest, with the winner receiving a gift card of their choice. The 2019 winner was motorcoach driver, Jermaine Hussett. His slogan? “When in doubt, check it out!”

See our Press Release for more details on Safety Week.
