SEPTA’s Got Big Plans for Underground Concourse


By Dan McQuade | February 17, 2015 at 10:26 am
Three and a half miles of concourses run under the streets of Center City Philadelphia. One can walk from 8th and Market all the way to the Comcast Center. One can then go from there to 12th and Locust. Walking underground can actually save time in many instances: There are no distractions, as swaths of the concourse are devoid of anyone but people rushing through, maintenance workers, loiterers and the occasional skateboarder and/or pot smoker.

After Using the Septa, I find it quite ridiculous that they still don't have escalators, and even use tokens. That must be a nightmare during Rush-Hour.

Tokens should be gone by Summer , most stations have Elevators or will be getting them. Theres nothing wrong with using the stairs...

Bear in mind that the Market Street Subway is almost 110 years old. Rebuilding those stations for modern escalators is TRICKY.

But, yeah. The tokens are an issue. They're still selling them.

Study: Reopening PATCO 'ghost station' will cost $18.5M


A train bound for New Jersey passes the closed Franklin Square PATCO station in this 2009 file photo. Michael S. Wirtz / Staff Photographer

Paul Nussbaum, Inquirer Staff Writer
Posted: Monday, March 16, 2015, 1:29 PM

The estimated cost to reopen PATCO's long-shuttered Franklin Square subway station in Old City will be at least $18.5 million, a new study says.

That's about 50 percent more than transit officials expected.

The study, requested last year by PATCO's parent Delaware River Port Authority, estimates 1,300 riders would use the station each day, but that nearly all of them would be current riders who now use the 8th and Market Street station.

Sleek, Modern Trolleys Coming to Philly

Nationwide, the streetcar trend seems to be ebbing. But SEPTA has big plans to modernize its trolley fleet.

By Malcolm Burnley | March 18, 2015 at 12:51 pm

Philadelphia has the largest trolley system in the nation, a title it’s held since the 1970s. But the old-school tanks climbing up and down city streets look like relics from our parents’ (or grandparents’) generation. Trolleys along Baltimore Avenue in the Southwest are early-80s Kawasaki models; on Girard Avenue, the trolleys are actually reconditioned from the ‘40s.

In a few years, though, that’s going to change in a big way.

How ****ed up is your society if you need mechanical warning systems to warn people having the right of way that a bus might disobey the rules and plow into them. It's pure victim blaming.

King of Prussia rail: Where will it go?


Two of the proposed trunks would follow the Pennsylvania Turnpike for part of the trip. This rendering shows the "Route 202" trunk, which briefly follows the Turnpike south, away from the mall, before turning onto DeKalb Pike. (Courtesy of SEPTA)

As SEPTA moves further down the line in planning a rail extension to King of Prussia, there are a few things we know - and many more that we don't.

Among the decisions so far: It will be a spur off the Norristown High-Speed Rail Line. The entire five-mile route will be on an elevated concrete track. It will stop at the King of Prussia Mall, end at the Valley Forge Casino and Convention Center, and include two to four stops along the way.

County Line Station - Norristown High Speed Line

SEPTA is proposing to close the County Line station (in Lower Merion Township) due to low ridership.
