Benefits of Trolley Modernization
Trolley Modernization will improve transit access in communities where 59% of the population are people of color – disproportionately more than the region at large.
Trolley Modernization will result in lower levels of air pollution by speeding up service and reducing the number car trips taken in our communities.
Trolley Modernization will catalyze over 38,000 permanent jobs across the region and improve access to 350,000 jobs, including those in Center City and University City, the economic heart of Southeastern Pennsylvania.
Trolley Modernization will strengthen existing connections by improving transit services that link workers to jobs, students to schools, and diverse communities to each other – supporting local businesses and an affordable cost-of-living for everyone.
SEPTA wants transit to be more useful to more people. To do that, we’ll need to hear from everyone – people who currently ride transit, people who used to ride, and people who have never ridden as well as operators, staff, and stakeholders. Sign up to be notified when there will be chances for you to hear more about the project and have your say.
