CHAPTER 12-2600. CHESTNUT STREET TRANSITWAY
§12-2601. Legislative Purpose.
(1) It is the legislative purpose of the Council of the City of
Philadelphia to improve mass transportation in the City and to enhance one of
the most important shopping districts of the City of Philadelphia by limiting
the use of Chestnut street from Eighth street to Eighteenth street and of the
eastbound lane between Sixth street and Eighth street to approved mass transit
vehicles and pedestrians. In order to assure that businesses on Chestnut street
will have no difficulty in continuing to receive necessary deliveries and for
the continuance of necessary maintenance, special provisions are made in this
chapter to allow necessary but orderly use of the Transitway by delivery and
maintenance vehicles. Every possible effort has been made to assure that the
businesses along Chestnut street will not be adversely affected.
