Every city has its “hot spots” — places where many gather to “hang out” around the clock. Unfortunately, sometimes these locations aren’t places one should go for a safe, fun time and often the illegal activities that occur there have a negative impact on the community. When Chief Thomas Nestel III re-joined the SEPTA Police Department in 2012, he set out to identify the top “hot spot” served by the agency.

During the course of my presentations to large groups, I have come to believe that they are some of the most exciting and inspiring events for transferring critical information regarding bus operator training and safety. Large group presentations are an excellent time to unveil new training concepts and strategies. There is a distinct feel and energy to the room that cannot be duplicated in any other setting.

What a week for the East Coast! First, the region was rocked by a "surprise" 5.8 earthquake, now it is looking in the eye of Hurricane Irene — a "once-every-100-years event," which is expected to impact down south in the Carolinas all the way up to Maine. Through it all, public transportation has been there and plans to continue to be there to transport customers and help provide evacuation efforts.
