SEPTA crisis meeting(s)

SEPTA has officially delayed its implementation of emergency measures (i.e., fare hikes and schedule cuts unless more funding is provided), but they are supposed to go into effect March 6. That notice lists some public hearings about this plan.

I'm tempted to go, and to remind them of the blue-ribbon commission of 4-5 years ago which recommended a set of changes, basically aimed at increasing ridership, for which the exact opposite were what the system chose instead. But if they wouldn't listen after paying untold thousands to the commission for its research and report, why would they listen to me, with red ink staring them in the face? Sigh.

See the SaveTransit site and the Delaware Valley Association of Rail Passengers for future discussion and updates.
