Select Station Names To Change On Route 101 and 102 Trolleys/Norristown High Speed Line

July 30, 2010

PHILADELPHIA, PA - Effective September 5, 2010, riders will see new names for select stations on the Route 101 and 102 Trolley and the Norristown High Speed Line.

For the most part, names on these lines reflect the streets immediately adjacent to the stations. This renaming will better identify those stations which were not associated with their actual roadway location. New and infrequent riders will benefit in addition to those who access popular electronic transit mapping sites and other GPS technologies.

The station name changes are the result of SEPTA's enhanced customer service initiatives. SEPTA is committed to making the service easy to use and understand for new and infrequent riders as well as those who regularly travel the system.

The following Station names will be renamed:

Routes 101/102
Current Station Name
Bywood
Beverly Hills
Oakview
Collingdale
New Name
Avon Road
Beverly Boulevard
Creek Road
MacDade Boulevard
Norristown High Speed Line
Current Station Name
West Overbrook
Rosemont
Stadium
King Manor
New Name
Township Line Road
Roberts Avenue
Stadium - Ithan Avenue
DeKalb Street

For the initial introduction of these changes, the new name will be printed with the old name in parentheses on the timetables. Station and line maps will reflect the new names. The installation of new station signs, along with updated rail system maps, will start immediately and should be completed by the end of the year.
