RAGE (Riders Against Gender Exclusion) has been working on getting SEPTA to remove the M and F gender stickers on trail and transpasses since 2009. And finally, a resolution!
The stickers will be removed from passes starting in the 2nd half of 2013.
From the RAGE press release:
As a result of discussions with RAGE and significant activism from the local transgender community, in addition to letters and e-mails from transgender people and allies around the world, Mr. [Joseph] Casey has at last agreed to submit a proposal to the [SEPTA] board of directors asking for the gender stickers to be removed from all passes in late 2013, the soonest date the policy can be changed.
