Community Bus Service
The purpose of the Rambler is to provide public transportation for residents to area shopping centers, malls, medical facilities, the Senior Center, and the Upper Merion Township Building. Each bus is wheelchair-accessible, and our drivers are certified to operate the lift mechanism.
Wheelchair passengers must wear a lap belt when riding the Rambler. The lap belt is required by the service provider to ensure the safety of passengers. The Rambler will be unable to service those who refuse to do so.
The two bus routes (the blue line and the green line) will operate from 9:00AM until 4:00PM, Monday through Saturday. These two routes will each run east to west and back again. View the Rambler Brochure and learn more about the blue and green line routes.
The base fare for a one-way trip is $2, or you can purchase a 10-trip ticket for $10. Students ages 7-17 ride for $0.50 and children under the age of seven ride free when accompanied by an adult 18 years or older.
Seniors, age 65 and older, ride free at all times on the Rambler and other SEPTA transit services, including buses, trolleys, subways, and the Norristown High-Speed Line. Senior Transit IDs can be obtained at no cost by making an appointment at the following locations:
