Schedules will change on Monday, March 15, for a number of SEPTA Suburban Transit Victory District routes.
Concurrently, SEPTA will begin the next phase of the Media/Sharon Hill Line (MSHL) Reconstruction Project in Delaware County. This phase of the project will require temporary shuttle buses to replace regular trolley service on the Route 101 Trolley Line between Drexel Hill Junction and Media seven days a week.
Shuttle bus stops are now located at or near trolley stops marked with ‘Route 101 Shuttle Bus’ signs. During weekday peak hours, some trips to/from Media will operate as Express service between 69th Street Terminal and Scenic Road.
Morning Express trips will depart Media at 6:24, 6:39, 7:04, and 7:17 a.m. Afternoon Express trips will depart 69th Street Terminal/West Terminal at 4:40, 5:00, 5:20, 5:40, and 6:00 p.m. Some weekday peak hour trips to 69th Street Terminal will begin at the Woodland Avenue Trolley Station (in the driveway next to the trolley station building).
Customers should expect an additional 10-20 minutes travel time. Regular Route 102 Trolley Service will operate between 69th Street Terminal and Sharon Hill during this phase of work.
