Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority's (SEPTA) board has approved a five-year strategic plan for fiscal years 2021 through 2026.

The plan — SEPTA Forward: A Vision for a Stronger Future — provides a framework for the agency's recovery from COVID-19 and sets a vision for future growth.

"The pandemic has highlighted the important role SEPTA has in providing access to essential jobs and services," said SEPTA Chairman Pasquale Deon Sr. in a press release. "SEPTA will be at the center of our region's recovery efforts, and this plan will play a critical role in laying the foundation for that work."

The purpose of the strategic plan is to assess SEPTA's impact as an agency, identify the challenges that are disrupting the transit industry and set the vision for where the authority needs to be headed. The plan establishes a clear mission: SEPTA moves southeastern Pennsylvania forward by providing safe, reliable and accessible mobility choices.

The strategic plan is organized around three goals aimed at achieving the authority's vision: develop a proactive organization, provide an intuitive experience and deliver a seamless transit network.
