As had been reported last month, SEPTA is losing nearly $800,000 per week, on top of the $41 million budget defecit at the start of the Fiscal Year. Now, SEPTA is reportedly sponsoring a Philadelphia Kixx "magnetic schedule" giveaway as part of the Kixx' home opener on November 1. Wow. Half the time, SEPTA can't keep it's buses on schedule, but they can somehow afford to pay for magnetic schedules for a minor-league professional indoor soccer team. I wonder how much money SEPTA is wasting on being a major sponsor of the Philadelphia Kixx. That money might be better spent making sure enough buses are available for peak hour service instead of being stuck in the garage due to parts shortages...
