SEPTA Just Released a Snowstorm Plan
If you rely on public transportation, here’s what you need to know as the city braces for about a foot of snow starting later tonight.
As of right now, a Severe Storm Schedule will be in effect tomorrow, meaning Regional Rail trains will operate on a Saturday schedule with enhanced Wilmington/Newark Line service. Cynwyd Trains will not operate. The Norristown High Speed Line will operate every 20 minutes.
There’s a possibility that SEPTA will enact an Early Exit Schedule before 10 a.m. tomorrow. If that happens, SEPTA will take 9 trains from the afternoon schedule and move the service to midday to accommodate people leaving early from work. We’ll update you in the morning if that happens – and you can check SEPTA’s website for the Early Exit Schedule.
Starting at 4 a.m. Tuesday, the following bus routes will operate on weather related detours: 7, 9, 14, 18, 19, 20, 22, 24, 26, 27, 28, 31, 32, 38, 44, 46, 48, 50, 52, 55, 57, 58, 65, 70, 73, 84, 88, 92, 94, 95, 97, 99, 103, 107, 108, 112, 114, 117, 119, 120, 124, 126, G, H, XH, J, K, and L. Check System Status for more information.
Keep in mind that SEPTA offers a list of Twitter feeds that apply to specific bus, subway and Regional Rail routes. You can receive general SEPTA updates on Twitter @SEPTA_social and visit SEPTA’s website for safety tips.
The Broad Street Line and Market-Frankford lines will continue to operate tomorrow. Trains will operate all night tonight in place of OWL Buses.
