A new city, a whole new transit system! From my home base at the University of Pennsylvania, I’ll be reviewing every bus route and train station on the sprawling SEPTA.

*Full Disclosure: I volunteer on the SEPTA Youth Advisory Council, but all opinions on this blog are my own.

Warminster

Man...Warminster is just a really sprawly town, huh? I guess it's no surprise that its station has a giant parking lot, with just a bunch of blech around it. Yet it's still one of the busiest stations on Regional Rail! Speaking of parking lots... We've got a ton of...

10 (13th-Market to 63rd-Malvern)

Over a year of doing SEPTA reviews and it's taken me this long to do a trolley? Shame on me. The 10 is the one I use the least, too, since it's the only one that doesn't go to Penn! Although it is the one I've taken to the end the most times - that 10-minute walk to...

46 (58th-Baltimore to 63rd-Malvern)

46 (58th-Baltimore to 63rd-Malvern)

I rode the 46 on a weekday and loved it. Hopefully the weekend frequency won't drag it down in the end... Coming into the stop at 58th-Baltimore. The 46 is a really short, simple crosstown that runs pretty much straight up 60th Street in West Philadelphia. It does...

150 (Parx Casino to Plymouth Meeting Mall)

150 (Parx Casino to Plymouth Meeting Mall)

Welcome to SEPTA's least-used route. The 150 looks absolutely bizarre at first glance: it's a nonstop suburban crosstown express from Parx Casino (in the northeast) to Plymouth Meeting Mall (in the northwest). I was all set to write this thing off as a 1/10 that makes...

1 (Parx Casino to 54th-City)

1 (Parx Casino to 54th-City)

It's always interesting to see what transit agencies choose for their route 1. The MBTA's 1, for example, is one of the busiest bus routes on the system, running frequently down a major urban corridor. What does SEPTA's 1 do? It runs hourly service, six days a week,...

Levittown

Levittown

SEPTA! Stop opening up new Regional Rail platforms! Let me get through my backlog without having to schlep up to random stations every couple of days! And you picked a real good place for me this time: Levittown. One of the first master-planned suburbs, and one with a...

Paoli

Paoli

Yes, I know I'm late here - Paoli's new platform opened over a week ago, and this one is a much bigger deal than Secane. I go through these phases where I'm really busy and don't have time to write, so...well, anyway: Paoli! Being SEPTA's 11th-busiest Regional Rail...

Wynnefield Avenue

Wynnefield Avenue

You know, I wasn't gonna do this, but I had already reviewed the other two Cynwyd Line stations...figured I might as well hop the one midday train once more to complete the trifecta with Wynnefield Ave. Plus, this'll mean I'll have done every station on the Cynwyd...
