Under mandate of House Resolution 118, passed on July 11, 1979, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives established a Select Committee to Investigate the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority. During the ensuing six months the Committee conducted public hearings, toured SEPTA facilities throughout the service region, and analyzed data submitted by SEPTA and other witnesses. The result of this work is the Committee's completed 152 page report. The major areas of concentration in the study are accountability by the authority to other governmental agencies and the public, public transportation financing, organization and powers of the SEPTA board, and the management of the authority. The report describes the most severe problems of SEPTA and makes recommendation for the alleviation of these conditions.
