New Philadephia Arts Center Not Integrated With Public Transit
Despite efforts by SEPTA, the new performing arts center in Philadelphia opened without any integration with Philadelphia public transit. In fact, several parking garages have been built to accommodate the center. There are only two ways to bring thousands of people to the Kimmel Center: encourage them to drive by putting in more parking, or encourage them to use public transportation to get to the show. So far, the powers that be have gone exclusively with the first solution...Not only has the Kimmel Center not promoted transit over driving, but in some cases, it has not promoted transit at all. One Kimmel Center brochure does not explain how to get to the venue by mass transit."
