UPPER DARBY, PA -SEPTA bus routes 104, 109, 110, 111, 112, 120 and 126 will return to their West Terminal boarding locations at 69th Street Transportation Center on Monday, January 4, 2016. The routes had been temporarily relocated for the West Terminal reconstruction and modernization project. While some construction continues, SEPTA is able to accommodate passengers at the West Terminal boarding locations for those routes.
“We are happy to be starting the New Year by returning our bus service to West Terminal and are looking forward to the completion of the reconstruction and modernization project,” said SEPTA General Manager Jeff Knueppel. “We thank our customers for their patience during construction and the boarding relocation. The improvements we are making at West Terminal will ensure that those customers will have a restored and modernized place where they can catch our buses and trolleys.
69th Street Transportation Center is a 105-year old, multi-modal facility, serving passengers on SEPTA’s Market-Frankford Line, Norristown High Speed Line, trolley Routes 101 and 102 and 18 bus routes. Renovations at West Terminal include:
- Reconstructing pedestrian ramps to terminal platforms, the North and Center Platforms and canopies and Center Platform waiting area
- Partially reconstructing the South Platform
- Enhancing safety and security efforts by installing cameras
- Furthering SEPTA’s commitment to sustainability by incorporating design features including green roofs to reduce storm water drainage, energy efficient LED lighting and architectural elements in the passenger waiting area that will allow for increased natural light and reduced energy use.
“SEPTA has made a great investment in Upper Darby with the West Terminal project,” said Upper Darby Township Mayor Thomas Micozzie. “The new, modern, safe and easily accessible facility is great for our residents who rely on SEPTA and can draw even more passengers to the Upper Darby area.”
The $19.6 million 69th Street Transportation Center West Terminal Improvements Project is part of SEPTA’s “Rebuilding for the Future” capital program. The work is funded through the Federal Transit Administration Bus and Bus Facility Livability Grant Program and Pennsylvania Act 89.
