SEPTA Transit Schedules to Change for Summer

Adjustments go into effect Sunday and Monday. Here’s what you need to know.

SEPTA’s summer transit schedules will kick off this Sunday and Monday.

The mostly minor adjustments are meant to accommodate seasonal ridership changes.

There will be one major change for some trolley riders, however: buses will replace all Route 15 trolleys through September 17th for a track renewal project. Construction on Girard Avenue will begin at Broad Street and progress west throughout the summer.

During that time, the inner lanes on Girard Avenue will be closed to all traffic in separate, multi-block construction areas. Side streets near construction sites will be closed to through traffic. Detours will be posted.

Below are other changes to transit schedules. More information, including a full list of summer transit schedules, is available on SEPTA’s website.

Regional Rail

A track improvement project starting Monday will prompt adjustments to late-night service for select Regional Rail trains. Some trains leaving after 9 p.m. on the following lines will be affected: Airport, Lansdale/Doylestown, Media/Elwyn, Warminster and West Trenton.

Check SEPTA’s website for details. Construction is expected to last 18 weeks.

Bus Routes

The following lines will see minor changes: Routes 4, 16, 45, 66, 93, 94, 117, 124 and 125. Changes will go into effect on Sunday (with the exception of routes 117 and 125, which switch on Monday).
