SEPTA plans 'alternative service' in light of strike

Posted: June 16, 2014

According to SEPTA, the Broad Street Line, Market-Frankford Line, Norristown High Speed Line, Trolley Routes (10, 11, 13, 15, 34, 36, 101, 102), Bus routes, excluding route 78, and CCT service, will remain in operation. Bus 78 will be temporarily suspended, SEPTA said.

"To accommodate the anticipated additional volume of customers, Market-Frankford, Broad Street, Norristown High Speed, and Trolleys will run extra capacity between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m," SEPTA posted onto its website, SEPTA.org.

According to SEPTA, Regional Rail customers are also encouraged to use the "alternative service" tool on SEPTA's website to see if other transit options are available at their stations.

SEPTA also reminds travelers to anticipate a certain level of inconvenience during commuter hours.

"If you have the option, please consider adjusting your travel times to avoid crowding and possible delays," SEPTA's website said.

SEPTA's owned and managed parking lots will remain open at Regional Rail stations free of charge. However, the parking lots owned by the city, private companies or local municipalities that are located adjacent to the stations will not operate under the same policy. Fees will continue.

To accommodate extra drivers, SEPTA has also arranged for additional parking at non-SEPTA locations. A full list of these locations can be found on the SEPTA's website.

Select Regional Rail ticketing offices will remain open for business. The full list can also be found on the website.
