In December, we invited ISEPTAPHILLYers to submit a caption the above SEPTA photo we thought deserved one. We received many entries - all of which captured the North Pole-meets-SEPTA fun of the photo. But - there can only be one winner and that winning caption came from Rita:
Have you seen the SEPTA route map? It’s GINORMOUS!!
Here are a few more of our favorites...
Ryan: You can’t spell Buddy the Elf without “the El.”
Bryce: When Santa makes you catch the El to work.
Syreeta: El-f on the Frankford Shelf
Dan: Does anyone know if this stops at Santa's Workshop?
Maria: Son of a Nutcracker! How do I get to the Candy Cane Forest from here?
Joe: Guys! Guys! Don't get on! This isn't the train to the North Pole!
Grant: I passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly-twirly gum drops, and then I realized the El would’ve been faster!
Ella: When Santa forgets the keys to the sleigh.
John: Buddy the Elf, what’s your favorite stop?
Dominique: The best way to spread Christmas cheer, is singing loud for all Septa riders to hear.
Michele: Hey have you seen the decorated buses....they are fantastic.
Colleen: Son of a Nutcracker! Are we going to the twirly wurly forest?
Jeffrey: Frankford? I thought this train went to the North Pole!
Denise: That's SEPTA, I know it!!!!!!!!
Brynn Ann: Hi! I’m Buddy! What's your favorite seat?
Geoffrey: When Santa makes you take the L from Berks Station to the Holiday Bazaar because he doesn't want to pay for parking in Center City
Matthew: I passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly-twirly gum drops, and then I got on the MFL!
Thomas: I REALLY NEED AN APARTMENT CLOSER TO WORK!
Dana: Let's Go...Let's Go all up and down the Tracks we go, through City Hall even out West, make way for Santa Express
Michelle: The Elf is riding SEPTA to the North Pole to spread the Christmas cheer, to see who has been naughty or nice this year!!
Teresa: I was watching Carson, Nick and their teammates in the parade and the next thing I know is it’s Christmas and I’m wearing this outfit.
Grant: Oh boy Santa is going to be so mad I got the sleigh towed! Thankfully SEPTA can get me to the impound lot!
Ancy: The Gang Gets Ready for Christmas Village
Judy: I planned out our whole day: First, we'll make snow angels for two hours, and then we'll go ice skating, and then we'll eat a whole roll of Toll-House cookie dough as fast as we can, and then to finish, we'll ride SEPTA all the way home!
