Yeah, only 34,000 people die a year in a car in the US alone. How many deaths per year on SEPTA?

Weird thing to say, no? Pittsburgh ridership is pretty consistent with Philadelphia ridership compared to city population. Also, 35% of Philadelphia households don't own a car, compared to 30% of Pittsburgh households - a pretty impressive number for a city of only 300,000 people. You should try visiting some other cities.

They were hit pretty hard by being part of the state of Pennsylvania - something that has also given Philadelphia a somewhat underwhelming system (which is still primarily, for most residents, a bus network) for a city of its size.

At least in my car I don't have to worry about getting attacked or hassled by some scumbag, crazy or not.

. ridership in philadelphia is a good bit higher even accounting for population. pittsburgh was hit doubly hard by funding woes and the fact that pat had been one of the worst run organizations in the industry but also because they have no commuter rail or rapid transit. anyway, rather than bashing rapid transit the lesson to be learned is that mental health is broken
