Previously they opened up a homeless center in the main train station that serves trains into Center City Philadelphia from the suburbs. Now the station looks like a subway station in the middle of Harlem or the Tel Aviv Central Bus Station.

Now they are wasting money on rebranding existing lines because certain people are too dumb to figure out how to read a simple rail map. They have to change signs in all the stations of every subway and trolley line.

It's not like New York where there are so many subway lines that it's hard to figure out where to switch trains if you are not familiar with the system. There are only two subway lines in Philadelphia.

There are also five trolleys that run on the street and also in the subway tunnel and one street only trolley in the city. The other trolleys are only in the suburbs.

They should use the money to modernize the infrastructure rather than rename existing lines that will only cause confusion where none exists.
