34 trolley tracks to be ripped up, replaced this summer

It seems like every summer, SEPTA has been ripping up and replacing trolley lines.  And this summer, it’s time for the 34 trolley.

According to westphillylocal.com, SEPTA recently announced that they’ll be replacing the 34 trolley tracks on Baltimore Avenue this summer.  Sure, it’s needed infrastructure improvement, but bummer for those (of us) who live near and depend on the 34 trolley.

 

What are SEPTA’s busiest bus, trolley, & rail lines?
