septa?  more like SUCKTA!

more like SUCKTA!

i know this blog isnt about me, but this entry sorta will be.  strictly philadelphia related, so there’s a good deal that none of this will mean anything to the lot of you.

this is a rant about septa.  if you’re not from/living in philly and are still reading for some reason, septa is the city’s transit system.  this is specifically a rant about the 46th street train station.  this is specifically specifically about how it totally and completely sucks.

okay, firstly?  the escalators NEVER work.  there are two escalators.  nearly every day, one is out of service.  now, i have my lazy moments, but i dont fall into a fat fit because i have to walk up a flight of stairs.  i go for the stairs most times anyway.  but to know that MY tax dollars paid for this shit and it has the nerve to be inoperable and unusable most of the time?  hell no.  fix it or give me some form of a refund.

that’s reason number one why the station sucks.

reason number two is the bright, clean, pretty sales window that HAS NEVER BEEN OPENED SINCE THE STATION ITSELF HAS.  wtf is your problem??  why do you think this is okay, septa??!  can i tell u quickly why it isnt okay?  because i cannot tell you how many times i have stood in a line longer than the one at the gates of heaven to put my $2 fare @ the fare window because everybody in front of me is buying transpasses and 10 packs of tokens and using debit cards and standin around waitin for change and shit AS MULTIPLE TRAINS PASS US ALL BY.  that’s what the big bright clean pretty sales window that i helped pay for is for, septa!!!  you got all this fancy shit at this station and YOU AINT USIN IT.  its infuriating!

  1. I walked past it this morning and saw some kid running up it goofing off on it. I was thinking exactly that “Why is this thing broken agian?”

  2. I am up in arms about this post.

    Nah, it sucks that station’s not quite up to speed. Unfortunately, I think the problem is that *not enough* of your tax dollars go to the maintenance of the facilities. Some day, when people are willing to fund SEPTA adequately, there’ll be enough money to maintain and staff all the lovely escalators and sales windows. Talk to your state and local representatives.


  3. “Willing to fund SEPTA adequately?”


    Here’s how we fund SEPTA adequately.
    Listening?: Everybody takes PAY CUTS and/or hire people who LIKE TO WORK.

    Hire people who like “clean”. SEPTA did a great job when the RNC came to town. 11th Street never smelled so minty fresh before.
    Now it’s back to sewage and urine scented.

    Hire people who like to be friendly and courteous.
    Service with a genuine smile.

    Hire people who will ensure that drivers aren’t fucking around talking to passengers instead of focusing on safe driving.

    Hire people who will routinely sweep the trash and cigar spillings out from the back of the trolleys at 13th Street and at the opposite terminus of the routes.

    Hire people who will make that smart card system HAPPEN instead of milking the public for transpasses and tokens. We’re in the 21st Centur. Let’s get with it.

    Instead of “We’re Getting There”? GET THERE. BE THERE. “We’re Here.” should be the new motto. They been saying that shit since the Kawasaki trolley cars hit the streets, and ain’t got there YET.

    Bunch of crooks up there at 1234 Market.

    With this current incarnation of SEPTA around, I will make sure that I have a functioning car, by any means necessary as long as I reside in the Delaware Valley.
