  • Bus Revolution Virtual Transit Talk

    • Thursday, September 30, 2021 at 06:30 PM

    SEPTA invites you to attend a virtual Transit Talk for an update on plans to revolutionize our bus system with a comprehensive bus network redesign. The topic of this Transit Talk is trade-offs. When it comes to redesigning a bus network, there is no single solution that will address every issue, no such thing as a perfect network; rather, we want to hear from you about the various trade-offs we will need to weigh to design the best network possible. Do you prefer faster buses, or more bus stops? Dedicated bus lanes, or sharing the road with cars? More frequent service to rail stations, or connecting neighborhoods to each other that are further away from rail? These are all difficult questions. Join us to learn more about these trade-offs, ask questions, and hear about upcoming opportunities to get involved.

  • Join 5th Square, South Street Head House District and Transit Forward Philadelphia in welcoming Christof Spieler author of Trains, Buses, People. The revised edition features updated information on fares, governance, funding, and stations, plus a new section on inclusivity to help all readers understand how to welcome riders regardless of race, gender, income, or disability. Eight metropolitan Canadian areas have been added and all the U.S. regions have been updated.

    This book is intended for non-experts. Anyone with a vested interest in making a more effective transit system can use the tools provided in this book. The maps and data for the 57 metro areas make it easy to compare each region to its peers, see which area is doing well, and highlight the gaps in transit service.

    Light food and drinks will be provided. This is a Vax only event for ages 12+ and children under 12 will be expected to wear a mask.
