SIT ON THIS... SEPTA has recently issued an expression of intersted to prospective bidders on replacing the comfortable cushioned seats on the M-4 Market-Frankford cars with "stainless steel passenger seats with plastic inserts." SEPTA is accepting such letters until February 18. That should give passengers enough time to revolt...
LOOKING FOR NEW HOMES SEPTA is also seeking to solicit bids for the removal of 13 PCC cars presently stored at Luzerne or Elmwood. The cars planned for sale include: 2092, 2098, 2105, 2111, 2117, 2150, 2159, 2163, 2704, 2712, 2713, 2716, and 2780. SEPTA is targeting transit systems, museums, and civic associations for this expression of interest, which will be accepted until March 4.
