Re: Upgrades to SEPTA Suburban Station

Most laws where status is the sole determining factor (no money, no job, no home address) have been deemed unconstitutional by the US Supreme Court. Conduct based statutes (can't lay down on a bench, or shower in a sink) are another story. That made many (not all) state and local laws unenforceable. Many states have constitutional protections of their own that apply. You can always create a segregated area for ticketed passengers like the waiting area at NYP, but most stations make big money renting retail space that depends on public access to be viable. Very hard to have it both ways.
