SEPTA might finally get a smart-card system

Dear God, Please Let It Be True. PlanPhilly reports that SEPTA approved a financing plan of $175 million in order to do away with the wretched payment system currently in place on buses, trolleys, and subways. This is the first step toward having a real, grown-up public transportation system in Philadelphia. Fingers crossed! [PlanPhilly]
