SEPTA says rear door boarding on bus, Norristown High Speed Line & Trolley service begins April 1, 2020 to further enhance safety and promote social distancing. Front door boarding will continue for riders with disabilities and senior citizens requiring boarding assistance. To maintain a safe distance between operators and passengers, SEPTA is suspending on-board fare payment.
Also note that to ensure there will be sufficient space on-board vehicles for customers to practice social distancing, SEPTA will limit the number of riders per-vehicle on buses. Operators will keep track of the number of people on-board each vehicle. If a vehicle reaches the maximum number of passengers, service will be limited to drop-offs until there is sufficient space to allow new riders to board.
