Philadelphia Bus Network Review

In 2017, the Southeast Pennsylvania Transit Authority (SEPTA) retained JWA to study Philadelphia’s bus network, with an eye toward possible redesign.

The contract consisted of the first part of a network design study, ending with a Choices Report.  The report provides exhaustive analysis of the existing system and its performance, and delves into the relationship between different data sources to build the case for a certain approach to redesigning the network.  The project required extensive consultation with City of Philadelphia staff across numerous departments, as well as many departments within the transit agency.
