Yes, the MULTIMODAL SYSTEM map showing all modes of SEPTA transit is online. You will find a "SYSTEM MAP" link on the left-hand side of the homepage next to "Trip Planner" but this map shows only the Regional Rail network and other rail transit (the trolley lines and high speed rail such as Route 100). SEPTA's map showing the MULTIMODAL SYSTEM is buried under "Getting Around" Menu. You will have to click on the "Maps&Stations" link and then go to the bottom of the list to find 'Philadelphia Street & Transit' map and the 'Suburban Street & Transit' map.

If you are not carrying an ipad, blackberry etc and/or if don't like zooming in and out of this huge map with red lines then you may want to consider carrying a hard copy map for reference. SEPTA sells their set of transit SYSTEM maps ((1) the Suburban routes; and (2) Philadelphia routes) in their shop at 1234 Market St, Regional Rail stations and through their online store for $8.30 each.

Spindler cartography, sells a 2008 Transit map showing SEPTA, PATCO and NJTransit, DART routes in the Philadelphia region for $2 (go to Phillymap.com for details). I find this map much easier to use because of it's user-friendliness: small size (easy to open up and hold), readability (colors, font sizes etc) and enough detail for easy orientation. (SEPTA's map can be overwhelming with every street named, many in painfully small font sizes).

Google has the bus stops on their maps. Google and intersection from the SEPTA bus schedule into Google and then look for the bus/trolley stop on the map. Once you become more familiar with the city, you will find it easier to understand the bus maps.
