Below is an update on the status of SEPTA’s services for Sunday:
Market Frankford & Broad Street Lines
Service has been running on or close to normal schedules, and is expected to continue overnight and into Sunday.
Service on trolley Routes 10, 11, 13, 15, 34, and 36 has been restored. Customers should expect delays.
Service on the Route 101 Trolley, between 69th Street and Providence Road only, will begin at 10 a.m. The Route 102 is expected to return late today.
Norristown High-Speed Line
Snow clearing operations with a jet engine are continuing between 69th Street and Bryn Mawr. Service between 69th Street and Bryn Mawr will begin late today. Service between Bryn Mawr and Norristown Transportation Center is expected to return late Monday, January 25. Full service from 69th Street to Norristown Transportation Center is expected to return for the Tuesday, January 26, morning rush hour.
Service will be restored on a route-by-route basis starting 10 a.m. Sunday morning, with a focus on priority routes that feed customers to the Broad Street and Market-Frankford Lines. Priority City Routes include 14, 18, 21, 33, 42, 52, 56, 58, 59, 60, and 66. Priority Suburban Routes include 93, 99, 104, 108, 109, 110, 113, 124 and 125. Detours are likely where service is running. For route-specific details, visit the System Status section on the SEPTA website at https://realtime.septa.org/system.
Service on all SEPTA Regional Rail Lines will remain suspended today. SEPTA and Amtrak are working around the clock to clear switches and tracks to make sure that the lines are safe and reliable for passengers and crews. Snow contractors are now working around the clock to clear stations. SEPTA anticipates that much of Regional Rail will be operating with delays on Monday morning.
Service will continue for dialysis patients only today. On Monday, limited service will be available for dialysis and medical appointments and esstential work personnel.
Parking spaces will be limited throughout the system. In-house forces and contractors are working to plow parking lots throughout the system. Snow removal efforts will run at night all next week, with snow being trucked out of many lots.
“The region is still in a snow emgency,” said SEPTA General Manager Jeffrey D. Knueppel. “Some portions of our service region were especially hard hit by the storm, receiving over two feet of snow.
This has made it difficult for us to be able to fully restore all service today.”
