I know that there is a shuttle that goes in between the first three, I think its called the blue bus, that is free for students of the tri-co. As far as UPenn goes, I think that they will pay for the subway tickets, but I'm not positive.
I'm a current student, and there is no cost to travel to Haverford or Swarthmore as there is a reliable, good college-run bus/shuttle system throughout the Tri-College Consortium. To get to UPenn, you either have to drive or take the regional line on the SEPTA train system, and I think that you can get tickets directly from Bryn Mawr (but I'm not sure). But yeah, as for the Tri-Co, there's no cost whatsoever, whether for going to class or going to a party or event.
To interact and contribute on College Prowler, registration is required. Don't worry, it's free, secure, and only takes a few minutes.

With the exception of the SEPTA and taxis required to get to Philly, the school provides most student transportation. Public Safety mans a fleet of vans, shuttles, and buses that get students around the farthest points on campus as well as to Haverford and Swarthmore. For the most part, this system works, though the Swat Van runs less frequently and may force you to arrive an hour early for class. Students tend to walk to town, but they may opt for the campus van after grocery shopping or in bad weather. Bryn Mawr also sends busloads of students to King of Prussia every few weeks. The R5 gets students to Philadelphia and back for $8.50 as long as the students return on the last train back to Bryn Mawr, which leaves at 1:19 a.m. on Friday or 12:49 a.m. on Saturday. Once in Philly, most students walk. For destinations not within walking distance of the train or subway stops, students can take a taxi.
Rather than schedule your life around the bus schedules, many students choose to invest in a bike and/or good walking shoes. To get to Philly, you are a faced with a more expensive situation. The train costs almost as much as most students would spend on dinner. As the cheaper alternative, the R100 is a 15-minute walk from campus, but students going out for an evening prefer the R5.
