SEPTA to Suspend Bus, Subway and Trolley Service in Center City Starting at Noon

SEPTA will suspend subway, bus and trolley service in Center City starting at noon due to expected demonstrations. These restrictions are being put into place in coordination with the City of Philadelphia, and will remain in place until further notice.

Bus routes will be detoured or suspended south of Vine Street, north of South Street, and east-west river-to-river. In addition, trolley routes will be limited to service to-and-from 30th Street and out into neighborhoods in West and Southwest Philadelphia.

In order to give customers time to complete planned trips, Market-Frankford and Broad Street Line trains will make all scheduled stops until 1 p.m. After that, all Center City stops will be skipped:

  • Market-Frankford Line: On the west end of the line, service will operate between 69th Street and 30th Street. On the east end, service will run between Girard and Frankford Transportation Center.
  • Broad Street Line: On the north end of the line, trains will operate between Fern Rock Transportation Center and Girard Station. On the south portion of the line, service will operate between Ellsworth/Federal and NRG Stations.
  • Please note that there are several stations on both lines that have been closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Those stations will remain closed. Please see for details.

Additional service adjustments are possible throughout the day. Customers are urged to check and @SEPTA on Twitter for real-time updates.
