Rose Cohen is on a mission to visit all 284 SEPTA stations in the region and rank them.

There are more than 280 SEPTA stations throughout the region, and Temple University senior Rose Cohen has made it her mission to visit and rank each one of them, writes Nathaly Suquinagua for Billy Penn at WHYY.

Since moving from Northern Virginia to Philadelphia, Cohen has decided to better familiarize herself with the city’s buses and train routes.

“There’s just so many interesting places to discover and you can only really discover these places by just going out and exploring on a whim, you don’t even need to plan, just get on a bus and train,” Cohen said.

She began her journey with a tweet, where she pitched the idea of visiting all of the SEPTA stations in alphabetical order. She received a lot of positive feedback with many people showing interest in following her journey.

Cohen uses the “Transit” app to track the buses and trains in the city, documenting everything she sees. 

Cohen’s ranking checklist has several criteria, including service, accessibility, and overall vibe. Ratings also include the surrounding areas and whether there is any transit-oriented development taking place. 

She hopes to continue sharing all the facts she’s learned about public transportation throughout her journey.
