SEPTA eliminating 20 stops from Route 66

SEPTA announced on Friday that it is eliminating 20 regular stops from the Route 66 trackless trolley service along Frankford Avenue between Bridge Street and the city line. In addition, the public transit agency is modifying an additional seven stops so that riders will board and disembark after the trolley crosses an intersection rather than before the intersection.
