Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority Serving Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties
All SEPTA fixed-route bus service operates with ADA accessible wheelchair symbol vehicles. Every SEPTA bus is equipped with a wheelchair lift or ramp. A SEPTA bus can be lowered, commonly referred to as kneeling, by the bus operator upon request to make the step up from street level easier. Our buses feature automated route and stop announcements heard both inside and outside the bus. Route information is displayed electronically on the front and side of every bus.
A SEPTA bus can transport mobility devices of any type - wheelchairs, scooters, and wheelchair strollers - that measure up to 48 inches long, 30 inches wide, and weigh up to 600 pounds when occupied. Larger mobility devices may not be able to fit on our vehicles. When on board our buses, wheelchairs and scooters must be secured in at least three points, with the securements connected to non-movable parts. Third-party vendors supply attachments that will ensure your device can be secured.
Trackless Trolley Route 29 and 79 are currently operated with buses but remain wheelchair accessible.
Older Silverliner Regional Rail cars are accessible to riders using smaller mobility devices. Silverliner 2s, 3s, and 4s can accommodate devices up to about 27 inches wide and about 42 inches long. The new Silverliner V cars accommodate mobility devices 30" x 48"; be aware that wider or larger devices may not fit through the doors. Regional Rail cars do not offer securement features.
CCT Connect provides ADA paratransit service to individuals with disabilities who are functionally unable to use regular, accessible fixed-route bus service for some or all of their transportation needs, as well as a Shared-Ride paratransit program for senior citizens. Mobility devices must be secured to ride CCT. Accordingly, we suggest customers using a wheelchair or a scooter provide to have four securement locations on non-movable parts of their device when riding a CCT Connect vehicle.
