Two Juveniles Cause $60k Damage to Buses; Robber Gets Shot in Olney; SEPTA Passes to Businesses

Two juvenile boys were taken into custody for damaging School District of Philadelphia buses and other equipment on Sunday evening, 3/20. It happened around 7:15 a.m. on the the 3800 block of Woodhaven Road in Northeast Philadelphia. An 11-year-old and 12-year-old boy gained unauthorized access to the school district property. They were seen intentionally damaging the school buses and other equipment. Officials say they caused $60,000 worth of damage. The incident remains under investigation.

One man was shot and killed and another was injured after a botched robbery inside an Olney smoke shop early Tuesday morning, 3/22. It happened around 1 a.m. at Y&H Snacks and Candy at 5th and Delphine Streets. A man was using the ATM when another man entered and declared a robbery. The man at the ATM was able to grab the robber's gun and turn it on him. He shot the suspect, but also hit his friend in the shoulder. Police found the suspect dead inside a stolen Toyota about two blocks away from the store. The friend had been taken to Einstein Medical Center in stable condition. The investigation is ongoing.

SEPTA is partnering with Drexel University, Penn Medicine, and Wawa for a new program that will provide employees at these three companies with free SEPTA Key Advantage passes. The passes would normally cost $200, but the companies will be able to purchase them at $140. They will be distributed to 15,000 employees across the three employers. It is a six-month trial program starting May 1. The passes work across the entire system, including regional rail. SEPTA hopes it will increase ridership levels which have been down since the pandemic started. After the trial period, more employers may be added to the program.

"SEPTA is thrilled to launch this exciting new program, which will provide real benefits for people working in our city and region," said SEPTA General Manager and CEO Leslie Richards. "This has the potential to provide a significant boost in ridership, which is critical to ensuring that SEPTA can sustain and grow service as we recover from the pandemic."
