This is the one I use, great of you live in the NE...
In June, free buffet on Mondays & June 20th, but you gotta go to guest services & get a card, took 5 minutes. Also there's another bus leaves an hour later (and somedays at 10 AM from the KSL place in that PDF above at Welsh & Blvd) - that bus goes to Showboat & somewhere else. Call them (KSL). But David Thomas got real nice buses.
Greyhound of course, leaving from Center City 11th & Filbert...
It's $19, and yes, they do give you $$ back, usually $20, Claridge gives $22
There another outfit or 2 leaving from
Ave # 1d10
It's actually on Fairmount betw 24th & 25th - but I don't know anything about that, call Klein's.
P.S. No, they're not RUN by the casinos, they are private bus companies. But they have agreements with each hotel. For instance David Thomas is strictly Trop. Probably the bus company gets your initial busfare, while the casino shells out the full $20 just for you to walk in their door.
