Transit Conditions

The region's transit agencies report transit fleet conditions to the Federa Transit Administration's (FTA) National Transit Database (NTB), by either rail vehicle or bus. Rail vehicles include light rail and trolleys, heavy rail (i.e., subway), and regional rail passenger cars and locomotives.

Four different agencies provide transit service to the region. SEPTA provides bus and rail service to all five southeastern Pennsylvania counties and has several commuter rail lines that terminate outside this service area, in New Castle County, Delaware; and Mercer County, New Jersey. The Port Authority Transit Corporation (PATCO) operates a passenger rail line connecting Philadelphia with Camden County. New Jersey Transit (NJ Transit) runs buses throughout the four southern New Jersey counties and into Philadelphia and has three rail lines in the region: a light rail connecting Camden and Mercer counties, and two commuter rail lines connecting Philadelphia and Atlantic City and Mercer County to New York City. Finally, Pottstown Area Rapid Transit (PART) provides bus service throughout Pottstown and into several neighboring municipalities in Montgomery and Chester counties.
