SEPTA Holiday Themed Buses in 2019

Philadelphia, PA: In the spirit of the holidays, SEPTA is once again doing Christmas buses for each depot.

The 2004 New Flyer D40LF buses that have been sitting on the sidelines for the past year and a half have made their way to each depot to be decorated.

For those that want the numbers, the ones that are confirmed so far are: 5859 is at Victory, 5749 is at Southern, 5735 is at Callowhill, 5727 is at Allegheny, and 5851 has returned to Frontier. If more are confirmed between now and next week we’ll keep you posted. But for now, keep your eyes peeled for those buses. You may even see them in motion from time to time as their decoration progress begins.

SEPTA has a Halloween-themed trolley car operating out of Callowhill depot. This car is number 9074 and operates on route 10. Catch it while you can you still have two days to catch that spooky trolley.

I have been with Virtual Transit Center since it's conception as the "Dash Forums" back in 2008. Since then, I have been writing and doing YouTube side by side, focusing both on Transportation and Gaming. Most of my knowledge comes from SEPTA as I lived in Philadelphia for most of my life. As of 2021, I am on YouTube as DashTransit, Dash5155, and TheDashOfficial.

As for the name DashTransit itself, it actually stems from my YouTube channel.

DashTransit was originally called "njt5329" and the channel was just clips of buses. Mostly SEPTA and NJT. A Fujifilm Finepix was used in this era.

Starting in July 2011, the Canon SX130IS camera became the camera of the channel, bringing HD documentary-style videos much like my buddy (trainman1971) did for DVD for many years past. This is when the channel became known as "Transit Action Series"

In May 2012, the original Canon SX130IS retired, and then all videos were recorded off a mobile phone until eventually uploaded proved too difficult due to hardships IRL

Starting in 2017, I used a Canon SX200IS from Bastranz to reboot the channel that otherwise was dead for a whole year prior.

Between April 19th, 2019, and January 21st, 2021, all videos were recorded by a Canon SX710 HS camera. The channel was renamed DashTransit 4/19/19.
