SEPTA: Will it get enough money from Harrisburg?
What is it doing for the environment?
Monday November 18, 2013 at 6:45 PM
Center for Business and Industry of the Community College
of Philadelphia, 18th/Callowhill Streets NE corner, 3rd floor,
Erik Johanson of SEPTA will speak.
There is resistance in Harrisburg to giving transit the money it needs. If the state gives too little, there will be service cutbacks.
Hybrid buses reduce diesel fuel consumption, helping cut air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. A new braking system on trains recovers and stores energy normally lost when the train slows. Bus drivers have been told not to idle their engines. SEPTA recycles.
