SEPTA Prioritizing Advertising over Service: Symptom of a Larger Problem
May 22, 2019

A few weeks ago SEPTA began an advertising pilot program on 20 of 300 fare kiosk machines along the Broad Street and Market-Frankford Lines. SEPTA riders attempting to purchase a ticket at these machines are forced to watch an advertisement before they can continue to live their lives. This is more than just a problem at SEPTA, it’s a problem with our society. After decades of government disinvestment, public systems are forced to ensure they can be efficiently monetized by private interests for private benefit.
