Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority Serving Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties
The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) will conduct public hearings regarding the proposed Fiscal Year 2018 Annual Service Plan.
The proposed Annual Service Plan includes changes to Bus Route 132, and also proposes two new Routes: Route 49 and Roosevelt Boulevard Direct Bus.
A Community Benefit Analysis has been performed for all of these projects. Implementation of the recommended projects will proceed pending the outcome of the public hearing process, SEPTA Board approval, and available funding.

This proposal would establish a new north-south bus route, which would operate from Brewerytown and Fairmount to Grays Ferry via University City. This service is proposed to operate seven days a week. It would provide an important connection from nearby neighborhoods to the growing employment base and health resources located in University City. Additionally, the proposed routing would create a direct transit option between 30th Street Station and the attractions located along the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
This proposal would make a route diversion along the border of Montgomery and Bucks Counties to provide transit to a retail and health service corridor in Hilltown Township, east of Souderton Borough. Currently the corridor is not directly served by transit. Area residents wishing to gain access must walk along a five lane highway section and in some cases through an expressway interchange. As part of the project, SEPTA would work with local and state officials in an effort to improve access from the new routing to the adjacent businesses.
This proposal is for new limited-stop service along the Roosevelt Boulevard with some elements of Bus Rapid Transit. The service would potentially feature frequent headways, bus stations with shelters, transit signal prioritization, and distinct naming and branding. The route would operate from Frankford Transportation Center to Neshaminy Mall.
