The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority this week released design concepts for new trolley stations as part of its trolley modernization program.

The program calls for building new trolley stations with easier navigability and level boarding, SEPTA officials said in a press release. Many current trolley stops feature just signs along a sidewalk with few or no amenities, they added.

The station designs build on recent public feedback. Public comments are still being solicited, this time for the design, colors and lighting for the stations, SEPTA officials said. The transit agency is collecting that feedback through an online survey, as well as from pop-up and virtual community events.

“SEPTA is excited about the progress we have made in recent months to advance critical work for trolley modernization, and [we are] eager to get feedback on these station design concepts,” said Chief Planning and Strategy Officer Jody Holton.
