For the next two weekends, SEPTA's Manayunk/Norristown Regional Rail Line will be put on hold between two stations while track work is performed. Commuters will be using shuttle buses in space of the trains between Wissahickon Station and Elm Street Station on Saturday and Sunday and on Sept. 13 and 14.
Passengers traveling inbound to Center City, according to SEPTA officials, will board buses about 35 minutes before scheduled train times. The buses will leave Elm Street Station, make a stop at Main Street, Norristown Transportation Center, Conshohocken and Spring Mill stations before express riding to Wissahickon Station.
Shuttle buses will not serve Manayunk, Ivy Ridge or Miquon Stations. Inbound passengers traveling to these stations will need to transfer from shuttle buses to an outbound train at Wissahickon Station to complete their trips.
Trains will depart from Miquon Station eight minutes before regularly scheduled train times and will depart from from Ivy Ridge, Manayunk, Wissahickon Station, East Falls and Allegheny stations three minutes earlier.
Outbound: Manayunk/Norristown Line trains will operate as far as Miquon Station. Trains will arrive at regularly scheduled trip times up to Ivy Ridge Station before arriving at Miquon Station. Passengers traveling to stations beyond Miquon will board waiting shuttle buses at Wissahickon Station to complete their outbound trips. After departing from Wissahickon Station, buses will express to Spring Mill Station and will serve Conshohocken, NTC, Main Street and Elm Street Stations.
All passengers should plan to add approximately 35 minutes on their trips.
During shuttle bus substitution weekends, supplemental late night bus service will be provided for inbound and outbound passengers traveling between Manayunk and Elm Street stations. Passengers can visit www.septa.org to view changes to their train lines and download the supplemental schedule. Riders can also contact SEPTA Customer Service representatives at (215) 580-7800.
