Following up on our Notebook entry last week, Center City District and SEPTA have unveiled a new series of public transit signs, designed to make SEPTA’s numerous Center City lines and access points easy to identify, more customer-friendly and distinctive.
Between now and December 1, CCD and SEPTA are soliciting YOUR feedback on these signs and their efficacy. Please do so by taking the following electronic survey.
For those who have yet to see them, these signs have been installed at the following six sites:
- 18th and JFK, southeast corner
- 19th and Market, northeast corner
- Broad and Walnut, southwest corner
- 13th and Market, northeast corner
- 1525 Locust (PATCO)
- The Clothespin, Centre Square plaza, 15th and Market
The transit sign system was designed by Joel Katz Design Associates and Bresslergroup. Fabrication and installation was completed by Urban Sign & Crane and Gordon Electric. Funding was generously provided by a $375,000 grant from the William Penn Foundation and $10,000 from DRPA. SEPTA will provide $312,500 toward the installation of the system at the remaining Center City sites.
