SEPTA Bike Rack Retrofit Update

SEPTA bus spotters on the posting in the Frankford Terminal Blog Guestbook continue to monitor the progress of bike rack installation.

1. So far at least 10 articulated buses have been retrofitted. The buses out of this depot serve routes 6, 9, 27, 33, 48, 54, 60, 65.

2. At least 4 NABI buses have been retrofitted at Frankford's Comly Depot. Routes 14, 20, 58. One bus spotter has speculated that Comly may be 100% bike accessible by September.

3. At the 69th Street Red Arrow Depot the first of 35 new buses have begun to arrive, expect to see many more buses with bike racks in Delaware County and Chester Counties later this summer.

I'll be posting links to retrofitted buses soon.
