Members of the community say that violence on SEPTA platforms continue to be one of the city’s biggest problems.

“It’s kind of scary that that kind of thing is happening around here. I thought it was pretty safe but I guess it’s pretty out of the ordinary for that to happen,” Jacob Davidson, a SEPTA passenger said.
