Public transportation in Philadelphia has come to a screeching halt

All public transportation in the City of Philadelphia has come to standstill after 4,700 SEPTA workers walked off the job Monday night at midnight when their contracts expired. That means no El. No BSL. No city buses or trolleys. There are alternatives, but the city is treating the strike as a citywide disaster, deploying emergency resources and bracing for the mess that’ll come as thousands of residents who depend on SEPTA will be left to find another way.
