SEPTA has launched a new online tool that gives riders real-time updates for all modes of travel in one place.
System Status offers a complete view of the SEPTA system with just the click of a mouse or touch of a screen. In one neat snapshot, you can see the status of all bus and trolley routes and rail lines. This new feature is available on SEPTA’s Website at http://www.septa.org/realtime/status/system-status.shtml. Here’s how it works: By simply clicking the System Status “Eye”, located on the bottom left-hand corner of every Web page, customers will be taken to a page displaying a grid with all routes and lines clearly listed. Four icons – denoting line suspensions, service alerts, detours and service advisories – will be displayed next to any route or line where service has been or is scheduled to be altered.
Customers can then click on the icons to find out how the changes are impacting service and what they may need to do to change travel plans. If no icons are displayed next to a specific route or line, service is running according to schedule and no alterations are planned.
