ON YOUR OWN... That's the attitude SEPTA is taking with most of it's bus and streetcar riders today as 6 to 8 inches of snow fall on the Philadelphia area. All that is said at the SEPTA web site as of 5:30pm is that "...a number of City and Suburban bus routes are operating with detours." Fine. It would be nice to know where some of the major detours and delays are taking place. Of course, that would require actually doing work, which is not exactly a SEPTA hallmark. At least DART First State provided details about some of the major adjustments in Delaware.
AMONG OTHER THINGS... Red Arrow 4539 slid off the road while operating on the 114 towards Boothwyn this morning. The accident occured at 12 St and Yarnall in Chester Twp at around 10:30am. At least 12 of the 16 passengers on board were taken to Crozer-Chester and other area hospitals for evaluation. I'm sure that there were other minor incidents involving SEPTA vehicles, but right now, this was the only one that was reported by the area press.
