Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Association (SEPTA)

SEPTA is a regional public authority that operates various forms of public transit- bus, subway, elevated rail, regional rail, light rail, and electric trolley bus in and around Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It serves the combined city and county of Philadelphia, Delaware County, Montgomery County, Bucks County, and Chester County. SEPTA also serves New Castle County in Delaware, and Mercer County in New Jersey. SEPTA Key Cards can be purchased at the Jefferson Campus Store in the Kanbar Campus Center.

SEPTA is pleased to launch Train View, your personal status report for all Regional Rail trains on the system.  It is a handy reference tool that can help save you time and waiting, so before you go to the train, go to Train View on the SEPTA website or you can make it one of your favorites!
