Our Plans to Speed Service and Improve Reliability

We are pleased to announce a six (6) month pilot program beginning April 18, 2011 that will introduce transit and street traffic changes that will:

Move some bus stops to the "far-side" of the intersection. This eliminates travel delays caused by buses getting caught at the traffic light just after a stop

Speed up boarding at 7th and Washington (AM) and 8th and Market (PM) by letting riders with passes use the rear doors during weekday peak hours. SEPTA Transportation staff will be on hand to assist

Consolidate selected bus stops. Fewer stops will speed service and improve travel time and you will never be more than 1 block from your original stop

Change sanitation truck routes on 7th and 8th Streets to avoid peak hour traffic
