Take a quick 5-minute survey & let us know what you think about SEPTA's bus network
Buses are a lifeline for all Philadelphians. They can connect us to family, community, and culture. Buses move riders where trains, trolleys, and subways simply can't. Riders depend on SEPTA buses to provide access to jobs, healthcare, and other essential services. Unfortunately, without a fast, frequent, reliable bus network, riders lose access to the countless number of opportunities the Greater Philadelphia region has to offer.
This is compounded by the fact that bus riders no longer see SEPTA buses as a viable and dependable form of public transportation causing bus ridership to further decline. Data shows that SEPTA's bus ridership has declined by 9% over the last four years. Yet, the population of the region has steadily grown over this same time period.
This decline in bus ridership is directly caused by poor frequency, slow bus speeds, and unreliable bus service
That is why we are calling on SEPTA to transform their current bus service to be faster, more frequent, and more reliable while connecting communities in a safe and dignified manner through our Better Access Better Service Better Buses Campaign
