Now more timely than ever: Is SEPTA F*cked?

It's not new, but this defiantly simple single-purpose website is worth checking out.

Maybe you’ve heard: SEPTA had to remove a third of its Regional Rail fleet due to a potentially dangerous manufacturing error.

This means fewer trains, crowded trains and longer waits for the 65,000 people who ride Regional Rail every day.

Now, if you’re among those 65,000 riders, here’s a defiantly simple single-purpose website you might want to check out: Is SEPTA Fucked?

We first told you about the site, created by Ardmore developer Douglas Muth, way back in 2012. At the time, SEPTA was not fucked; currently, SEPTA is decidedly fucked.

As of press time, nine out of 27 trains are late. “You may want to look into alternate forms of transportation,” the site helpfully advises. SEPTA buses, the site declares, are currently not fucked.

(For a more detailed look at how Regional Rail trains are faring, Muth is also behind the sleekly informative Septa Stats.)

If you can, work from home. Or how about biking? The Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia even made a handy map:
