One problem with all this "change" is that the people making the decisions do not use the system.
Septa should mandate that everybody on the teams or imputing to the decision should use the SEPTA system for ONE MONTH without free passes (pay cash or use the card) before making any input decisions.
I would imagine that after Richards takes the bus from Plymouth Meeting to Center city perhaps we would see a better level of input.
Rules
- No cheating ride the bus regardless of weather
- trips must be timed on time arrival at work, no leaving work early to catch a bus!
- use the pass or cash only, divide the decision makers into two equal groups.

Just for the heck of it I looked over the fare system. It seems even more confusing now for a non PA person. The not valid for bus if rail and vice versus. getting senior status crazy. 1 day and 3 day still has ride limits ? You have to be a PHL lawyer to figure it out.

Yes, they need to eat their own dog food, then make decisions.

With a major rebrand of the maps and way finding coming. Is it time that Septa have new liveries for it's trains, trolleys and buses? Does Septa's livery date all the back to 1993?

1996. It debuted with the delivery of the NABI buses.
