A project is described which employs 400 formerly unemployed persons to improve the appearance and cleanliness of Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority's (SEPTA) vehicles, stations, and depots. Since resources have been concentrated largely on keeping its vehicles rolling, uninviting conditions aboard public conveyances have contributed to a steady loss of SEPTA's riders. The project aims to make the SEPTA system presentable and to draw more people. The workers are paid through a $4.7 million Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) title VI grant. The Authority's Rolling Stock and Shops Department in charge of vehicle maintenance, employ part of the SEPTA/CETA participants.
