Route 47 Service Enhancement Pilot…didn’t quite work out

On Sunday, October 30th, SEPTA will be discontinuing most of the aspects of the Route 47 Service Enhancement program that started last spring.  Unfortunately, they weren’t able to receive the enhanced travel times that they desired and customers were still getting passed up.  They will keep the following things, though:

  • SEPTA Loader during PM Rush at 8th and Market, allowing Center Door boarding.
  • Far side stop (on the other side of the intersection) at 8th and Walnut
  • Adjusting trash collection schedules to avoid 8th and 7th Streets during rush hour.

The regular September 4th schedule will still be in effect until February, though.
