After months of delays, SEPTA has finally set dates for public hearings on the Fiscal Year 2005 Annual Service Plan, which would modify two routes in South Philadelphia and dramatically restructure several bus routes operating in the Chester area. From first glance (I have yet to recieve the ASP document itself), it appears that most of the proposals remain unchanged, however, the 104 was also added to the list of tariffs, leading me to believe that the 119 will indeed be cut back to Cheyney (or possibly to West Chester Pike and Chester Rd) and the 104 would be re-routed off of West Chester Pike between Bolmar Street and the US 202 bypass and onto Paoli Pike to replace 119 service to West Goshen Shopping Center. When I get a copy of the document, more details will be posted. The hearing dates are scheduled as follows:

  • Monday, July 18: West Chester Municipal Building, 401 E Gay St (Routes 104, 119, and 314)
  • Tuesday, July 19: Days Inn hotel, Chester (Routes 109, 116, 117, 118, and 119)
  • Friday, July 22: SEPTA Headquarters, 1234 Market St, Philadelphia
