Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority Serving Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties
Fifty years ago, SEPTA held its first organizational meeting, forming the beginnings of the transit system we all enjoy today. So how should SEPTA, our riders, and the region recognize the agency's semi-centennial anniversary? A one-day party seems insufficient. But a year-long campaign to celebrate the future of SEPTA with great stories from the past sounds like a perfect way to celebrate 50 years of service to the region.
This page will include stories about SEPTA from riders, retired employees, and others who have fond memories of our transit system. There will also be regular updates regarding special events, programs, and contests to be held throughout the year. Happy Birthday SEPTA!
