SEPTA announces money to help expand bus service in the city

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- SEPTA announced it has been awarded money to help expand bus service in one of the most heavily traveled bus corridors in Philadelphia.

A $2 million federal grant will allow SEPTA to begin the next phase of its Boulevard Direct Service project.

The project will ultimately provide high frequency, limited-stop service between Frankford and Wissahickon Transportation Centers.

The work is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
