In the Event of a Regional Rail Service Interruption

What You Need to Know

Update: Regular Regional Rail service is expected to resume at the start of business on Sunday, June 15.

In the event that the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLET) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) begin a work stoppage, Regional Rail service systemwide will be suspended. The exact timing of such an action is not known, but it could occur as early as 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, June 14, 2014.

Should Regional Rail service be suspended we encourage you to look at the Alternate Service information on the SEPTA website to see if there are Transit travel options for your station. To find Transit alternatives for intermediate Regional Rail travel please use Google Transit or Plan My Trip.

What Service Will Operate

The Market Frankford Line, Broad Street Line, Norristown High Speed Line, Trolley Routes (10, 11, 13, 15, 34, 36, 101, 102), Bus routes, except Route 78, and CCT service will not be affected by this interruption. Route 78 Bus service will be temporarily suspended in the event of a service interruption. To accommodate the anticipated additional volume of customers, Market Frankford, Broad Street, Norristown High Speed, and Route 101/102 Trolleys will run extra capacity between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. If you have the option, please consider adjusting your travel times to avoid crowding and possible delays.

Please note that new schedules go into effect on Sunday, June 15 and Monday, June 16 for the Market Frankford, Broad Street, and Norristown High Speed Lines as well as select Trolley and Bus Routes.

Fares

Ticket Offices at outlying Regional Rail Stations will be closed except for the following locations:

Chester Transportation Center

Holmesburg Station

Langhorne Station

Lansdale Station

Norristown Transportation Center

Paoli Station

Queen Lane Station

These ticket offices were identified because they currently serve a high volume of customers purchasing Transit fares, which we anticipate will only increase in the event of a Regional Rail service interruption.

All Center City Ticket Offices - University City, 30th Street, Suburban, Market East, and Temple University Stations - will remain open and operating with regular business hours.

Customers following the Alternate Service options for travel on Transit routes may use the following to pay their fare

Current weekly/monthly TrailPass

One Day Independence Pass (Individual or Family)

One Day Convenience Pass

Cash - $2.25/Transfer $1.00 (exact Cash fare required)

Token - $1.80 each (sold in packs of 2, 5, 10)

Regional Rail Tickets

Customers wishing to use a Regional Rail Ticket are advised that the Operator/Cashier will punch the ticket and issue a transfer, if required. The punched ticket will be taken at the beginning of your trip and transfer will be surrendered at the start of the second part of the trip. If your trip does not require a transfer, the Operator/Cashier will punch and collect the ticket. No refunds will be issued for the difference in price between the Regional Rail Ticket and the fare for the Transit trip.

Safety

Keeping customers safe while traveling is critically important to SEPTA so please remember even in the event of a Regional Rail service interruption:

DO NOT trespass or walk in the track area. Freight service will continue to operate and there maybe SEPTA pilot trains out on the line

If you are traveling from a Transportation Center or Bus Loop, do not walk out into the lane of bus traffic, look both ways before crossing, and only cross at designated cross walks

If you are traveling on the Market Frankford, Broad Street or Norristown High Speed Lines, please stand behind the yellow line and do not run for a train - another one will be arriving very shortly

If you are traveling by trolley, don't walk directly in front of or behind the vehicle - make certain the operator can see you

We realize these changes will create travel inconveniences and that you may encounter crowded vehicles and stations. We appreciate your patience and understanding. If you have travel questions, please contact SEPTA Customer Service 215-580-7800.

Service Guarantee will be suspended in the event of a service interruption
