DART First State Gillig Low Floor 434 at Tri-State Mall

Claymont, DE – Starting today, December 1st, 2021, SEPTA Route 113 and DART First State routes 13 and 61 will no longer serve Tri-State Mall.

A land developer has purchased the land that was once Tri-State Mall and intends to tear down the former mall in order to build warehouses. In turn, buses have been removed from the property, and will no longer serve this location.

DART First State routes 13, and 61, and SEPTA route 113 will now terminate at Naamans road and Society Drive temporarily.

When Claymont Station along SEPTA’s Wilmington/Newark Line is done being rebuilt in 2022, these bus routes will be re-routed to serve Claymont Station, connecting with route 31.

About the author: Dash Verified icon 1

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.
