At Nicetown, where there will be a SEPTA Bus running for several hours, two issues come to mind. One is the dangerous exhaust coming out of that air-conditioned bus, and the 2nd is that there is no place for folks to use the bathroom, while cooling on the bus. Folks would have to venture back out into the heat to find a restroom. Seems a weird solution.
