Telling Transit Stories

This year SEPTA turns 50, and is celebrating both its history and future with a series of events.  On  Thursday, June 19th, SEPTA will commemorate its 50th Anniversary with a “Throwback Thursday” event featuring a sidewalk display of our oldest buses, vintage uniforms and other memorabilia. The public is invited to view the displays and share their own transit memories by bringing SEPTA-related
mementos such as photos, patches and other items.  The event will take place at SEPTA HQ, 1234 Market St., from 11 am to 3 pm

There will be a "Storytelling Station" where rider's can record a video of their SEPTA memories, which will be posted on the SEPTA website (  Donated memorabilia will be included in a public display at the SEPTA Transit Museum. The Transit Store will also feature the debut of new collectible 50th Anniversary items including a poster, mugs and other items now available for purchase.
