Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia | Public Transportation

Reader-Nominated Topic

For more than three centuries public transportation has helped both to shape and define the Greater Philadelphia region. Befitting one of the world’s largest cities, Philadelphia and its hinterland have been served by a bewildering array of transportation options, and these vehicles and routes have helped to define the extent of the region.

Public transportation – consisting of vehicles that operate on fixed routes used by the public – began in the region in 1688 with a ferry between Philadelphia and what is now Camden, New Jersey. This early line, though not a success, spawned additional ferry service and quickly established a Philadelphia hinterland in New Jersey. It was an early example of land outside Pennsylvania being tied economically and culturally to the city and established a precedent for southern New Jersey to develop in association with Philadelphia.

It would be more than one hundred years before local

Drivers Looking to Get Their Kia Vehicle Thoroughly Cleaned are Invited to the Lehighton Kia Service Center

A family riding in a vehicle

Drivers and passengers can enjoy a clean Kia vehicle when they visit the Lehighton Kia service center.

Drivers have become more particular than ever before when it comes to cleaning the interior of their Kia vehicle. Not cleaning the interior of a vehicle allows for dust to build up, which can downgrade the performance of air vents and other components. It can also allow for stains to break down materials like leather quicker than normal. Of course, there is also always a concern over germs and bacteria.

At Lehighton Kia, the in-house service center’s technicians offer cleaning and sanitation services on Kia vehicles. Thanks to their knowledge and experience, they can clean and sanitize difficult-to-reach areas while using effective, yet gentle cleaning solutions recommended by Kia.

While cleaning each Kia vehicle brought in, the technicians can do a thorough inspection of

Automotive Stocks Gear Up To Fight COVID-19

Major automotive and auto component manufacturers have seen their stock prices decline by an average of over -30% year-to-date, due to the Coronavirus pandemic. While General Motors stock is down by about -41% year-to-date, Ford is down by -47%. However, Tesla has bucked the trend, rising 68%. The health crisis has meant people really don’t need to drive much right now, and not many are buying new cars either. Irrespective of what local and country governments prescribe or guide, we don’t believe this is likely to change in a hurry. Discretionary spending is likely to drop as the economy slips into a recession, impacting auto sales.

Though steep declines have happened, more pain and declines are possible in the coming weeks as

This prevents the possibly contaminated air in the
