Posted June 13th, 2014 @ 5:31pm
What You Need to Know
There's a chance the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) could begin a stoppage this weekend. If that happens Regional Rail service systemwide will be suspended. The exact timing of such an action is not known, but it could occur as early as 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, June 14, 2014.
If Regional Rail Service is suspended you can check out SEPTA'S Alternative Service Info webpage by clicking here.
What Service Will Operate
The Market Frankford Line, Broad Street Line, Norristown High Speed Line, Trolley Routes (10, 11, 13, 15, 34, 36, 101, 102), Bus routes, except Route 78, and CCT service will not be affected by this interruption. Route 78 Bus service will be temporarily suspended in the event of a service interruption. To accommodate the anticipated additional volume of customers, Market Frankford, Broad Street, Norristown High Speed, and Route 101/102 Trolleys will run extra capacity between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. If you have the option, please consider adjusting your travel times to avoid crowding and possible delays.
Please note that new schedules go into effect on Sunday, June 15 and Monday, June 16 for the Market Frankford, Broad Street, and Norristown High Speed Lines as well as select Trolley and Bus Routes.
SEPTA owned and managed parking lots at Regional Rail stations will be open and customers can continue to use them for daily parking free of charge. Daily parking fees will continue at any lot, adjacent to Regional Rail Stations, operated by a private company, the City of Philadelphia, or local municipalities.
Parking capacity is available at select SEPTA lots adjacent to the Broad Street, Market Frankford, Norristown High Speed Lines, and Trolleys; we have also arranged for additional parking at non-SEPTA locations as noted in the list below. Go to the clickable system map and check the station profile for SEPTA parking lot capacity information.
