SEPTA is asking the public to provide feedback on two network options for the as part of their Bus Revolution project.

Bus Revolution, the authority’s first comprehensive redesign of its entire bus network, is a key project under SEPTA’s strategic plan, SEPTA Forward, and focuses on revamping bus service to better connect people across the region.

Both network options expand SEPTA’s frequent network (routes operating 15 minutes or better between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m.) and feature simplified service and improved network design:

Option 1 is more streamlined and includes an expansive frequent network, including on the weekends.

Option 2 still expands the frequent network over the existing system but includes more duplication and includes more low-frequency coverage service. • Both options introduce microtransit (flexible, on-demand transit service operated with smaller vehicles) to provide more reliable service in low density parts of the region.

There are different ways to participate in Bus Revolution. Pop-up events and virtual community conversations are planned through June and the agency is encouraging everyone to join the conversation. For ways to offer feedback, refer to the schedule below and here.

Bus Revolution Pop Up Events occurring Tuesdays:

Bus Revolution Virtual Community Conversations hosted with various neighborhoods occurring Thursdays and two Tuesdays:

A second virtual transit talk is scheduled for Thursday, July 14. This talk will summarize the findings from this phase of the project and discuss next steps as the authority moves towards identifying a preferred network option.
