A new agreement between the city of Philadelphia and SEPTA is designed to promote diversity in contracting and supply the transit agency with the materials it needs to move into the future.

Deputy Managing Director Mike Carroll, who is also a SEPTA board member, said the Equity in Infrastructure Project is designed to “manifest the values” of the city of Philadelphia when it comes to diversity and inclusion.

PennDOT, The Enterprise Center and SEPTA got together earlier in June to engage with businesses to network and talk about the future procurement of the agency.
