Weekday Schedule Change Timetable | PDF
All SEPTA Regional Rail trains operate according to a published timetable but many customers don't realize the scheduled the times are when the train DEPARTS the station.
For your safety and to help us maintain our On-Time performance goals, it's essential that you factor this in to your travel planning so that you have plenty of time to:
Get to the Station parking lot
Catch the Shuttle
Buy your ticket or pass if necessary
Arrive at the Station platform before the train arrives
We know mornings can be hectic, but you can't cut corners when it comes to travel safety. We're concerned about the number of Regional Rail customers sprinting for a train that's already at the station and the complaints we sometimes receive that the Conductor saw you and refused to wait "just another minute" to let you on the train. It's important to understand they're not trying to be discourteous - we simply can't do it for you (and everyone else) and maintain our travel schedule and keep riders safe by discouraging them from running for trains.
Public transit is a partnership between SEPTA and our customers. Our goal is to ensure the highest levels service and on time performance possible. In return we ask that you plan your trip to arrive at the station in enough time so that you can catch the Shuttle and be waiting on the platform when the train pulls in.
