SEPTA to introduce rider-friendly transit tools
The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) is expanding its use of new maps and communication tools to make it easier for riders to use transit.
In February, SEPTA released a transit map that depicts SEPTA’s bus and rail routes together as a single network. Now, SEPTA is adding frequency-based transit maps that will be installed at stations throughout the system, SEPTA officials said in a press release.
The route colors on the map correspond to the routes' frequency of service so that riders can plan trips more easily, they said.
Furthermore, SEPTA will create a new advertising campaign, as well as introducing new symbols and brands explaining transit frequency.
The schedules incorporate the Market-Frankford Line, Broad Street Line, six trolley lines and 19 frequent bus routes.
