Bucks County SEPTA bus routes could change to on-demand service, agency says

Existing SEPTA bus service in Bucks County is in peril as the agency looks to eliminate redundancy, improve transportation logistics and cut costs via a new initiative that replaces fixed routes with on-demand pickups.

SEPTA unveiled details of the plan during a public “Community Conversation” online Monday night. There will be major route changes and the outright elimination of at least one bus route that services Bucks County, officials said. In the place of those routes, SEPTA is proposing an on-demand, microtransit approach.
