Those traveling to Penn’s Landing, New York City’s Times Square, and many points in-between to ring in 2014 can take advantage of extended SEPTA late-night New Year’s Eve Regional Rail service to return home from the celebrations. There will also be extra service on the Broad Street and Market-Frankford Lines to accommodate revelers.
