Local State Senator Stewart Greenleaf is pushing for some kind of transportation funding bill. The 12th District Republican sits on the Septa board.
“I’m really proud of what Septa is doing. We’re increasing our ridership on our regional rails. The biggest problem we have is parking. We’re always looking for parking lots we can acquire, so more people will use regional rail.
Greenleaf voted for the Senate passed bill, which would have hiked transportation spending two and half billion dollars. Leaders are working on a compromise transportation funding bill that is expected to voted on in November. Greenleaf was a guest on Friday’s Comment Please By Univest Program.
