Summer escort reviews in philadelphia
Dear Mr. According to the article, you stated, "We should be encouraging people to live here; instead we're giving them free rides to the competition in Center City and our streets are empty Sir, I was shocked, appalled and outraged by your remarks, on this and other subjects, by their patronizing and flippant tone, and by their summrs of ignorance and misinformation.
I live in West Philadelphia and use Escort times a week. I have been employed at Penn for almost 15 years and find that the Escort Service is the only part of the University that functions well after its first year or so of poor serviceup to two-hour waits! Philadephia wait no longer than half an hour; drivers are skilled and courteous; and best of all esocrt service functions until 3 a.
I am also pleased that Escort operates on weekends and holidays without schedule alterations, year in and year out.
Summer the one and truly taylor
This is one of the few University functions that accommodates staff and recognizes us as part of the University community. Both staff and students live in Center City as well as West Philadelphia. It is no business of the University or yourself where we phkladelphia or why. Perhaps we room with friends or family, own or have inherited property, get a "good esckrt from a friendly landlord. Neither you nor the University should be flakking for West Philadelphia real estate brokers.
Your only task in this matter is to provide safe, free transportation to students and staff year around within a perimeter of reasonable distance from the University, evenly in at least two directions. It was irresponsible of you to propose curtailment of University services during the middle of summer, when students and staff are on holiday, and in a journalistic skmmers not primarily serving the University, but aimed at West Philadelphia.
Seamon, I ask that you do nothing about Escort until after the school year begins in the falland then only after consulting the entire University community, giving us time to reply.
Students, faculty and staff, whether or not you live in Center Esfort, please call or write Mr. Tell him you want to see free, safe, dependable transportation east and west of the city maintained and improved, not curtailed. And those of you living in or visiting Center City: Use that C van. Support the service by using it.
edcort If I lived in Center City, I should look forward to those long, dark lonely walks across the bridges, past shuttered businesses and "adult" theater marquees. Public transportation is expensive and stops at about a. Taxis are twice as expensive as in any other big city on the East Coast, and the drivers are worse than the perps on the streetand they don't know where they're going, either.
But what would give me a real thrill is the anticipation of the millions of dollars I or my estate would realize from a successful suit against the University when I am severely injured or killed on my way home because the University chose to protect its staff and students unequally. Thank you for your time.
Frances G. Hoenigswald Philadelphiaa have stated publicly on a of occasions that in my opinion, as Managing Director of Public Safety at Penn, the University should escorh the extent of its Escort Service to insure it is compatible with the overall strategy of the University. Specifically, I believe that encouraging students to live and shop in Center City by providing free transportation is counterproductive to the goal of making the campus area a more vibrant place to shop, dine, and gather.
I have never advocated that the entire Penn Escort Service be discontinued.

Indeed, if service east of the Schuykill were discontinued it might be desirable to shift resources and increase service in summegs West Philadelphia area. I have stated my opinion in the hope that it might lead to a reasoned discussion on campus regarding the future of the Penn Escort Services.
