National Coloring Book Day

Septa buses cb crop

Today - August 2 - we celebrate National Coloring Book Day! To celebrate, we're taking a look back at a coloring book created by SEPTA in 2001. It's fun to take a look back and see after 16 years, what's still the same and what's new.

For example, the Transit Store located at 1234 Market Street looks remarkably the same. 

Paws was just a young pup back in 2001. Not yet ready to wear the engineer's cap and overalls...

What's new is, we no longer refer to the Route 100 as the Route 100 or the P&W or the Piggly Wiggly. It's the Norristown High Speed Line.

We still have trackless trolleys.

There were no Silverliner V cars in 2001.

The "new" bus featured in the coloring book is not so new anymore. This year, we've debuted buses with outlets and digital screens. Next up, 100% electric buses and buses with WiFi!

Let us know if we missed anything! Happy coloring
