Starting Sept. 4, the Route 90 bus will leave the Norristown Transportation Center, travel up Markley Street and Swede Road, turn left at Germantown Pike and make several stops in front of the hospital and the adjacent medical offices. Timetables aren't ready yet, but buses are expected to leave the NTC for Einstein on an hourly basis.
"This helps to ensure access to health care and employment for our patients, employees and their families," Bill Ryan, Einstein's director of government relations, said in a release. "Einstein is grateful to the SEPTA board members and staff who made this possible."
The Route 90 extension was approved as a trial for up to one year, after which SEPTA will assess usage and economic performance and hold a public hearing. The board will then vote on making the route permanent.
