Whenever a customer at Payless Airport Parking calls for a shuttle, it's guaranteed that the company's sleek, silver van will arrive to pick them up within 10 minutes. The parking service shuttles its customers to and from Philadelphia International Airport and ensures this prompt arrival whether the customer is waiting at the garage counter or just woke up from a power nap on the baggage-claim carousel. While their owners are away, cars are kept locked in a secure, gated area. During this time, staff technicians can keep each vehicle in top condition with hand washes, oil changes, and tire rotations. To aid those who have arrived in Philadelphia but haven't brought a car, Payless Airport Parking also operates a rental service. The service oversees eight vehicle makes and models, each of which are primed for pickup with a hand wash.

Penn Scooters’ electric vehicles zip riders along the streets and alleyways of Philadelphia, offering an up-close perspective on the city.

Super Trans's spacious shuttles depart from Philadelphia up to five times a day as they escort travelers to either Newark or JFK airports. Customers in Philadelphia and some nearby suburbs can arrange for door-to-door pickup, and others can choose their boarding locations from a list of pickup points, such as the Hampton Inn Newtown, the Philadelphia Airport, and the landing strip atop City Hall. The 2.5- to 3-hour ride departs at regular intervals throughout the day, giving travelers the stress-free freedom to arrive to the airport with enough time to check in, browse the gift shops, or get lost in the hypnotic swirl of the baggage claim upon return. Every shuttle makes an average of two to four stops. Customers can see the shuttle schedule here.
When Brian McInerney reflects on the humble beginnings of Wheel Fun Rentals, Inc., he points to his childhood passion for bikes. "As far back as I can remember, I had a real love affair with bicycles," he recalls. During a trip to Italy in 1987, Brian's affinity for cycling blossomed into a full-fledged obsession when he spotted locals' transporter of choice, the surrey. Inspired, he began importing the Italian four-wheelers to a rental business in the U.S. that eventually expanded into Wheel Fun Rentals, now a nationwide web of shops that also loans out bikes, electric cars and mopeds, and man-powered watercraft. Adventuresome athletes can also compete in activities such as surrey scavenger hunts and blindfold obstacle courses navigated via shouted instructions from a seeing teammate or exceptionally long rounds of trial and error.
Owning a car can be a burden: paying for insurance, paying for gas, paying for a car-sitter every time you go for a hike. That's why Enterprise Rent-A-Car started CarShare, a community program that lets members take out vehicles around the city without worrying about any of those inconveniences. Once at the CarShare location, customers need only to use their membership card to unlock the door. Members can reserve a car by the hour?as well as daily or overnight?and low rates include the cost of fuel, insurance, and up to 185 miles per day. They enjoy a wide range of choices, too: electric and hybrid rides, SUVs and pickups, and passenger vehicles populate the company's stable of fuel-efficient vehicles.
