City of Philadelphia
The City’s Office of Transportation & Infrastructure Systems (OTIS) and the Streets Department manage the Roosevelt Boulevard “Route for Change” Program and provide technical expertise.
The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation maintains the Boulevard and has been actively engaged with stakeholders and communities to improve the route’s safety for all modes. Regional PennDOT information can be found on the District 6 page.
SEPTA is responsible for service along, as well as connecting service to the Boulevard, and is directly involved in planning efforts to provide more efficient bus service with improvements in frequency and shorter trip times for all users.
The Roosevelt Boulevard “Route for Change” Program is primarily funded by a USDOT TIGER planning grant, with additional funds from the City of Philadelphia, PennDOT, and SEPTA.
