Citypaper is reporting a confirmation from SEPTA that the voice on the BSL to announce the closing doors has indeed changed.
SEPTA spokesperson Jerriah Williams confirms that the voice from above has, indeed, been changed throughout the Broad Street Line. Williams said the announcement changes were made in Sept. 2010 when Pattison Station was updated to what is now AT&T Station.
