Effective September 5, 2010, riders will see new names for select stations on the Route 101 and 102 Trolley and the Norristown High Speed Line.
For the most part, names on these lines reflect the streets immediately adjacent to the stations. This renaming will better identify those stations which were not associated with their actual roadway location. New and infrequent riders will benefit in addition to those who access popular electronic transit mapping sites and other GPS technologies.
The station name changes are the result of SEPTA’s enhanced customer service initiatives. SEPTA is committed to making the service easy to use and understand for new and infrequent riders as well as those who regularly travel the system.
The following Station names will be renamed:
- Bywood to Avon Road
- Beverly Hills to Beverly Boulevard
- Oakview to Creek Road
- Collingdale to MacDade Boulevard
Norristown High Speed Line
- West Overbrook to Township Line Road
- Rosemont to Roberts Avenue
- Stadium to Stadium – Ithan Avenue
- King Manor to DeKalb Street
For the initial introduction of these changes, the new name will be printed with the old name in parentheses on the timetables. Station and line maps will reflect the new names. The installation of new station signs, along with updated rail system maps, will start immediately and should be completed by the end of the year.
