This is your chance to share IN PERSON feedback on SEPTA’s Draft Bus Network! Don’t forget to mark your calendar with the date of the Open House happening in your neighborhood.
SEPTA’s Bus Revolution Draft Network is the result of input, engagement, and listening – over the past year – from riders and potential riders, community members, residents, and others across the city about needed changes. Guided by the project’s goals to put the rider first, increase access to opportunity, and build trust with reliable service, SEPTA is now launching its new proposed network and wants to hear input from the community.
The Bus Revolution team will host over 20 events, including in-person Open Houses and virtual Community Conversations, and hear from riders, potential riders, and residents.
Each Open House will feature information boards displaying key features of the proposals, focusing on the potential local impacts of these changes. SEPTA’s fall fest-themed Open Houses will also feature local resource tables, fun activities for all ages, and local entertainment/food. By attending, you will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win prizes such as gift cards and tickets to sporting events!
