With nearly 340 million riders annually, SEPTA is the 6th largest public transit system in the US. It runs 1,300 miles of bus and trolley routes, yet none of these routes has an enforced, dedicated right of way. This means that one stopped vehicle can stop a bus filled with 40+ people from getting where they need to go.
We draw inspiration from our daily experiences and the work of other transit riders unions and advocacy groups. We combine face-to-face organizing with advocacy backed by our independent research to assert that we must prioritize transit on our streets.
