Year 2 Update!

January 21, 2022

Bus network redesign presentation image

Upcoming Event: Virtual Transit Talk | Thursday, February 3, 2022, from 6:30PM–7:30PM | CLICK TO REGISTER

The SEPTA Bus Revolution team thanks everyone who participated in Year 1 of the SEPTA Forward: Bus Revolution!

They received nearly 8,000 responses to the Fall 2021 survey, met many of you in-person at 10 pop-up events at bus stations across the region, and discussed the project with you at 4 virtual “Transit Talks”. Your feedback was—and will continue to be—instrumental in helping to shape the next phase of the project: developing multiple design options for a new bus network. 

While they heard from you about bus network trade-offs, they took a deep dive into the current state of the SEPTA Bus Network and its region. And they are ready to share their findings with you. The following reports can be accessed on the project website at the following link:

Executive Summary. A summarized version of the State of the System and Market Analysis that describes the underlying market and need for transit services together with network-level opportunities for improvements. 

State of the System. This describes SEPTA’s bus network at a system level. It is designed to show how the network overall works now, including its strengths and weaknesses. The analysis also identifies opportunities to strengthen the system and improve the quality of service in Southeast Pennsylvania. 

Market Analysis. This investigates the underlying market for transit in SEPTA’s service area. It looks at where existing and potential riders live, and where and when they travel. Ultimately, it helps identify gaps and needs—both spatially, and by time and day of week.

In the coming weeks, the Bus Revolution team will also be releasing a series of Route Profiles. Individual Route Profiles offer an in-depth look at each of SEPTA's Bus Routes. Route Profiles will be released according to geographic sub-areas.

The Bus Revolution team will also provide a “dashboard” that shares the underlying data and analysis. 

Upcoming Event: Virtual Transit Talk

To get you up to speed on the project progress and walk you through the new reports published on the website, the team is holding a virtual public Transit Talk on Thursday, February 3rd, 2022, from 6:30 – 7:30 pm. Register now at the link below! 


Please note that live subtitles will be available for you to turn on during the meeting. If in addition you would also like to request an ASL on-screen interpreter for the meeting, please send your request to [email protected] by January 27, 2022. 

The SEPTA Bus Revolution team thanks you again for your participation in Year 1, and look forward to continuing to hear from you in 2022!
