SEPTA is soliciting requests for 50 new trackless trolleys with off-wire capabilities. This rumor had been circulating among some transit activists in Northeast Philadelphia for a while, but had not been confirmed until SEPTA posted it's solicitation request on-line today. This, coupled with the impending return of the AM General trackless trolleys to the Northeast routes (59, 66, and 75) seems to indicate a rare shift in attitude at 1234 Market. That said, it's very possible that either the FTA or the City of Philadelphia may have nudged SEPTA into it's new position.
