Philly and SEPTA give four routes traffic signal priority

As part of a pilot program, SEPTA and the City of Philadelphia are setting up a program where three city bus routes and one trolley route will be fitted with traffic prioritization technology.  This will enable the vehicle to “hold the light” until it makes it through the intersection, hopefully speeding up the travel time significantly.

The routes selected are the 6, 13, 52, and 60.  The Federal Highway Administration has contributed $3.3 million to the program.  SEPTA hopes to put this program into action in the next two years.
