The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) is a regional public authority that operates various forms of public transit — bus, subway/elevated, trackless trolley, light rail, and commuter rail — that serve 3.8 million people in and around Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. SEPTA also manages construction projects that repair, replace, and expand infrastructure and rolling stock.

SEPTA serves the combined city and county of Philadelphia, Delaware County, Montgomery County, Bucks County, and Chester County. SEPTA also serves New Castle County in Delaware, and Mercer County in New Jersey.

SEPTA is one of only two U.S. transit agencies that operate all of the five major types of transit vehicles: regional (commuter) rail trains, "heavy" rapid transit (subway/elevated) trains, light rail vehicles (trolleys), electric trolleybuses and motor buses. The other is Boston's Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority.

Today SEPTA is the nation’s fifth largest public transportation system, with its vast network of fixed route services including serving a 2,200 square mile service region. SEPTA is also one of the region’s largest employers, with a workforce of about 9,000 employees. Its headquarters is located at 1234 Market Street in Center City Philadelphia.
