Earlier this week, SEPTA announced a new way to check the “system status.” The idea is that in one place, you can find out the delays, detours, alerts, and advisories for each line. Great idea, right?
But the user interface leaves a lot to be desired. The display looks like a circa-1990 website. Sure, it gives the information you’re looking for but the presentation? Meh.
In fact, it kind of reminds me of something from Faye Moore era: it works, but it’s not all that exciting. Which is odd, given the great advancements that SEPTA has made recently with technology and the rider experience.
