Motor Coach Parking

Motor Coach Parking

Ample motor coach parking is available adjacent to the ship in the Penn's Landing Parking Lot. Motor coach parking is $34* per vehicle. Prices subject to change.

  • Proceed into the semicircular driveway and pull all the way in until you reach the parking attendant.
  • Drop off your group leader who will proceed to the ticket booth.
  • Pay the parking attendant and proceed to the allocated bus parking spaces.
  • Drop off the group while in the parking space.
  • When dropping off large groups please try to unload one coach at a time.
  • If the driver does not wish to cruise, he may leave the lot immediately after dropping the group off and Penn's Landing will refund the money paid.
  • Buses cannot drop off in the semi-circle; this obstructs the driveway to the Chart House Restaurant and all other traffic entering and exiting the area, creating a dangerous situation for both driver and passengers.
