SEPTA Media Relations

SEPTA is providing transportation and related assistance to more than 500 veterans who are participating in the 34th National Veterans Wheelchair Games, which is being held August 12-17 in the Philadelphia area. Participants include veterans with spinal cord injuries, amputations and neurological disorders.

SEPTA has retrofitted 29 buses to accommodate the athletes, and staff is actively providing assistance as they travel to events including swimming, basketball, quad rugby, softball, track and field and other sporting events.
