Sen. Stewart Greenleaf is a Republican representing parts of Bucks and Montgomery counties, who sits on the board of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority. He says SEPTA should put up more warning signs. He's also calling for heightened vigilance by SEPTA employees and increased education efforts.
