The campaign specifically tackles the main complaints SEPTA has received from its riders, which are taking trash with you, foul language, blocking the front aisle and seat hogging.

The operation uses mainly visual signs with minimal words.

One reads: “Dude, it’s rude…Two seats– Really?” And another says, “Dude, it’s rude… Don’t block the front aisle.”
