Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority Serving Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia Counties
When customers choose to use Regional Rail or any SEPTA service, our goal is to provide the most pleasant travel experience possible. But that is not enough. We also need to provide a safe riding experience and environment. Safety is one of fundamental principles of the transit industry and SEPTA has committed to establish a safety first corporate culture for our employees and customers.
The next Make the Safe Choice Customer Safety Day is May 17, 2017. This years' program highlights the theme Respect the Train. SEPTA employees will be out at Regional Rail, Market Frankford, and Broad Street Line Stations talking to customer about the importance of safety on and around the SEPTA system. A special event will also be held at Primos Station.
On Monday, May 1, 2017, we will reach an important milestone in our safety program when we activate our equipment on the Paoli/Thorndale, Trenton, and Wilmington/Newark Regional Rail Lines and begin operation under Amtrak's Positive Train Control system. With this completed the last piece of our Positive Train Control program work will be focused on the boundary locations between the two systems - where SEPTA service abuts Amtrak.
