SEPTA highlights subway stop where you’re most likely to have electronics stolen

    Chew on this next time you whip out your cell phone to text on one of SEPTA’s subway lines: the tranist agency has highlighted the stops where you’re most likely to have your electronic stolen. The numbers cover a decent-sized swath of service.
    As reported in today’s Daily News, passengers should pay closer attention to their devices on the Broad Street Line stops between City Hall and Fern Rock and the Market-Frankford Line stops between Huntingdon and Bridge/Pratt.

    SEPTA’s hoping in-train warnings, more visible officers and in-station security headquarters will help reduce the thefts.

    Do you use your phone, e-reader or other device on SEPTA? Are you worried about it being stolen?
