SEPTA Travel Update – Philadelphia PA Area

Just a couple of quick SEPTA Update points for residents and those planning a visit to the region:

SEPTA Train Delaware County PAIf you are going to be in the area for just a brief period but plan on depending on public transit, SEPTA has now added three options: the One Day Independence Pass, the Family One Day Independence Pass, and the One Day Convenience Pass.  The primary differences between the Convenience Pass and the Independence Pass are that the Convenience Passes can not be used on the regional Rail Lines and are limited to only 8 trips.  The Independence Pass only places limits on the regional Rail Line travel prior to 9:30 AM.

If you only need easy transportation options while visiting for a short time, these allow more flexibility then the traditional Weekend Passes or weekly TransPass and TrailPass.  For all the options and costs, be sure to check the SEPTA site.

Also be aware that SEPTA is now beginning the projects approved under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.  SEPTA Logo PAFunding has been approved and awarded for various projects across the region.  The complete project list covers everything from Station Renovations to basic Right of Way and Yard work.  Many of theses projects have been discussed in a recent article from the Delaware County Sunday Times.  A key change to note is the upcoming closure of the Route 101 and Route 102 trolley lines for up to a year as the entire line is upgraded.

SEPTA continues to provide many transportation options throughout the Philadelphia area to serve the needs of the local residents.  With these changes both to fares and the physical system, this service should be in better shape for years to come with improved equipment and service.

As always, if you have any questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me anytime.
