August 9, 2023

A few steps away from Lehigh University and the city of Bethlehem. Easily accessible by bus and train.

There are 4 buses scheduled to travel from bethlehem to Philadelphia each day. It's best to book your ticket in advance as they may sell out. The busiest time is typically on Monday, so plan accordingly.

If you are traveling with a group, make sure to book in advance and arrive at the departure time to guarantee seating together. The average journey takes 2 hours and 5 minutes, and the price is around $37 one-way.

The Lehigh and Northampton Transportation Authority (LANTA) recently unveiled new routes and schedules, but many riders say the changes aren't enough. BETHLEHEM -- Dashawn Staples is dressed in nursing scrubs and waiting for his bus at the Bethlehem Transportation Center, on the north side of the city. He's skeptical of LANTA's new service, and he wants more changes to the system.

LANTA will have a new ticket counter and stop at the north-side Bethlehem Transportation Center at 635 Guetter Street, near West Broad and North Raspberry streets. It's replacing trailers that housed the Trans-Bridge and Bieber buses on Mechanic Street, and a convenience store that operated in the space. The new location is better suited for the bus services, a LANTA executive director said.

The center is open from 5am until midnight, and the earliest bus departs at 5:30am and the latest at 9pm. Tickets are available at the ticket window and through the Ticketing App on your smartphone.
