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.

15 (63rd-Girard to Richmond-Westmoreland)

Yeah, yeah, save the comments. I'm, what, six days late? I mean, technically five days, if you count the fact that a 15 trolley ran at, like, 12:30 AM on Saturday, thus allowing SEPTA to claim that they ran that day and service was "officially" ending Sunday. Thanks...

Stadium (NHSL)

Stadium (NHSL)

For our first review on the wild and wacky Norristown High Speed Line (I'm shocked it's taken this long to do one), let's take a look at the newly-renovated Stadium Station! Opened on January 13th (four days ago), the station still has some construction going on, but...

Bridesburg

Bridesburg

Yikes, SEPTA, I'm really sorry for covering some of your worst stations in such a short succession. And despite having just witnessed North Philadelphia's "apocalyptic decrepitude", Bridesburg still managed to give me a shock when I stepped off an outbound train here....

The Longest Bus Ride in America

The Longest Bus Ride in America

My friend Nathan and I have just completed (well, sorta - read more to find out) the longest bus ride in America: Greyhound Schedule 1675 from New York City to Los Angeles. We live-Tweeted the whole thing, and it is truly an experience. From the highest highs (the...

North Philadelphia and North Broad

North Philadelphia and North Broad

Alright, this might just be the most bizarre station I've ever reviewed...and I have Hastings under my belt. It's hard to effectively set up the apocalyptic decrepitude of the North Philadelphia complex without getting specific, so I'm just gonna go into this. Also,...

Spring Garden (MFL)

Spring Garden (MFL)

Ah...that part of the El where it runs along the highway for a bit. And it stops at quite possibly my least favorite station on the line, Spring Garden. Ugh, I can hear the rushing cars just thinking about it... Yup, and even more so when I look at this picture. Right...

Warminster

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)

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...
