SEPTA’s frontline employees are some of the most essential workers in our region right now.
From our conductors and operators, to our cleaning and maintenance crews, along with the countless other roles our employees fill, they are responsible for providing a critical service to our community—making it possible for people to get to their jobs and access grocery stores, hospitals, and pharmacies.
Throughout the pandemic, SEPTA’s frontline workers have tirelessly done their part to ensure safe and reliable travel for those who need it, and they will continue to do so for as long as necessary. This tribute wall located in Suburban Station includes the names and photos of 28 SEPTA frontline employees—there are thousands more who deserve to be recognized for their tremendous efforts.
It is our hope that this wall will serve as a symbol of the dedication, hard work, and sacrifice by all of our SEPTA frontline employees—and when people pass by —they will take a moment to thank them. They are true heroes, and we appreciate everything they do to keep us moving.
The official unveiling ceremony is Thursday, October 8, 2020 at 11:30am. Attendees include SEPTA Board Chairman Pasquale T. Deon, Sr., SEPTA General Manager Leslie S. Richards, Peter M. Grollman, CHOP Senior Vice President of External Affairs, and SEPTA Frontline Employees.
The wall, which will be on display for 90 days, is the first in a series of displays across the system to recognize SEPTA’s heroes.
