The Broad Street line started operation on September 1, 1928. Today, SEPTA's Broad Street. subway system is served by a fleet of 48 double end and 76 single end non married cars. These cars have hard plastic orange and tan seats. These cars were retrofitted with a GPS announcement system device. These operate in 5 car trains on locals and some express runs and in 2 car trains on Ridge Spur and some express runs.
