List of SEPTA Trolley and Interurban stations

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority contains more than several trolley lines and one interurban line; These include five Subway–Surface Trolley Lines, and one Heritage trolley (Route 15), all of which were inherited from the former Philadelphia Transportation Company, and originally built by the Philadelphia Rapid Transit Company. Both systems are officially part of the City Transit Division. It also includes the Norristown High Speed Line (Route 100) an interurban commuter rail line between Norristown, Pennsylvania and Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, originally owned by the Philadelphia and Western Railroad, then acquired by the Philadelphia Suburban Transportation Company, which itself was originally the Philadelphia and West Chester Traction Company. The P&WC built the Media-Sharon Hill Lines trolleys (Routes 101 and 102), which were inherited by PSTC, only for all PSTC assets to be taken over by SEPTA in 1970. These systems are part of the Suburban Transit Division.

Stations of the Route 15 Heritage trolley, as well as those of former trolley lines will not be listed here.
