SEPTA is in the process of accepting bids for 86 recently retired Neoplans. With the next wave of mass Neo retirements coming soon upon the arrival of the 5500-series New Flyers, it looks as though they're going to need a little more room at Midvale and Frontier scrap yards...
SEPTA's Capital Budget plan is now on-line at the official SEPTA web site. It seems as though the proposed extension of the R3 from Elwyn to Wawa is in a holding pattern while SEPTA holds it's hands out for big bucks for the "Schuylkill Valley Metro" project (assuming they can avoid the whammy - you have to be a fan of the TV quiz show "Press Your Luck" to get this joke).
