Default Looking to share rides from Philly area to Somerset

Hello,

I know there is a bus that goes once a month to Somerset from Philly, but it goes on a weekday. I'm looking for anyone in the Philly suburbs area that has someone they visit at SCI Somerset, that would like to do a ride share on the weekends.
Right now I'm able to drive about once a month to once every 6 weeks, but I'd like to see my son more often than that. My son is fairly new there and doesn't know anyone from our area.

If anyone is interested, please PM me.

Thanks,

Tatonkawia

Default Are you looking for transportation to a LO in PA?

Hello family and friends,

Do you usually drive to see your loved one at a prison in PA? Do you not drive but you commute from a totally different state to see your loved one in PA? I use to travel from Atlanta, GA to PA and then catch a van service to the prison. I recently moved back to NY and now I take Greyhound to Philly and the van company I use picks me right up from the bus station and drops me right off.

The driver does door to door pick up. You will have to contact him yourself for pricing and schedules. I go to SCI Camp Hill like every other week with others going to see their loved ones. There are many regulars but it's always a new face amongst the regular faces. I cannot wait until my next trip on the 20th!!! I will list all contact information below

Ryder Transit
267-639-0002
**You can call or text the phone number to find out if they go to the the PA State Correctional Institution where your loved one is located.
Instagram: @RideWithRyderTransit
**You can check out their Instagram which also shows upcoming trips and prices.


Good luck!!!

Crazy thing is I was just on the instagram page of the service van I use to get to Camp Hill and they just made a post of a company that goes where they do not and SCI Forest was one of the locations. Below is the contact information for the transportation service that goes to SCI Forest:

Welcome to the forums.
Just a heads up. This is the Penn forum for ride share etc. The detention center is in California. Also, not such a good idea to post personal information such as tele and email address.

Resolved.

It's very helpful if you include the place you'd be coming from. There are different busing programs from different cities in PA.
