Transit bits

The war for public opinion continues: The CityPaper pans the union's ad campaign and SEPTA's informative flyers, while the Inquirer reports SEPTA leaks of their negotiating positions (DN report here). The union is unimpressed with the "facts" released, saying that they hide big increases elsewhere (as doubling caps for out-of-pocket payment for hospitalization) as well as inequities (e.g., SEPTA management still doesn't pay any of its own health coverage). Noting the rising winds, the school district issues advice on contingency plans for students and parents.
