City Files Lawsuit against SEPTA

The city is taking SEPTA to court…again. Romulo Diaz, Jr., a city solicitor, filed the lawsuit yesterday as an attempt to stop SEPTA from eliminating transfers August 1st, as this fare hike is disporportionate and a large burden on city transit riders.

The lawsuit asks that the elmination of these transfer be postponed until specific standards are set for SEPTA fare increases and service cuts, which don't currently exist within the SEPTA board.  This lawsuit will be heard in the commons pleas court this morning.
