SEPTA is considering extending subway service past its current 12:30 a.m. curfew to as late as 3 a.m., starting with Friday and Saturday nights at first as part of a pilot program.
Question is, would you use it?
According to the Inquirer’s report:
Because of increasing nightlife and residential activity in Center City, SEPTA may continue service after midnight, when subways now are replaced by “night owl” buses, general manager Joseph Casey said. …
Chief financial officer Richard Burnfield said his staff was still assessing the costs – for security, operators, cashiers, and maintenance – to determine if a resumption of some late-night subway service would be included in the agency’s proposed budget that will be released next month.
A petition that was started two weeks ago to prod SEPTA into restoring 24-hour service (currently Night Owl buses run every 15 minutes) had already gotten more than 2,100 signatures. You can sign it here.
