ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Establishment of the SEPTA Art in Transit Program grew out of a belief that aesthetic enhancement at stations and facilities could be an integral component of broader community outreach and partnership building efforts. SEPTA stations, transportation centers, and headhouses are visible community landmarks known to riders and non-riders alike. By using permanent art installations as a focal point, the Authority seeks to strengthen its identity as the region's public transit provider and create a dynamic transit environment while fostering an enhanced sense of pride and ownership for riders and the neighbors living in the area surrounding a station. For an art-filled day on SEPTA, purchase a One Day Independence Pass and enjoy unlimited travel on the system to see all of these Art in Transit installations.
