Bridging Blocks:
Transforming Public Transit

Transforming Public Transit


Each day SEPTA serves more than 700,000 riders across its 200 routes in the Philadelphia region. While the transportation authority wants to modernize its fleet, it struggles with reduced ridership. Despite receiving record-level funding in recent years, SEPTA lags behind its peers in annual capital investments., Its riders regularly have concerns about increased violent crimes and drug use onboard and at stations and stops.

How does our region ensure safe, equitable and accessible public transportation for all, while keeping fares affordable and maintaining existing services?
