SEPTA looks to resume partial service Tuesday

Bus and Regional Rail service could be delayed a bit longer depending on Sandy's aftermath.

SEPTA has announced plans to resume partial service Tuesday afternoon once Hurricane Sandy has passed through the area, although nothing is guaranteed.

All SEPTA service was suspended 12:30 a.m. Monday as a precaution. Officials said they will assess the system Tuesday morning and make a decision on whether to resume some service in coordination with Philadelphia’s Office of Emergency Management and based on the safety of the public and its employees.

The first modes to resume service would be the Broad Street Subway and Market-Frankford Elevated Line, followed by bus and city trolley service with possible detours and cutbacks, SEPTA said. Other modes, such as Regional Rail, Norristown High Speed Line and Route 101 and Route 102 trolleys, may be slower to return to service because they operate in flood-prone areas. SEPTA CCT service remained in operation for dialysis patients Monday and is expected to honor reservations on Tuesday, the agency said.

SEPTA also said that based on Amtrak’s notice that service on its Northeast corridor will be disrupted until Wednesday morning, the following Regional Rail lines will be suspended until further notice: Paoli/Thorndale Line, Airport Line, Chestnut Hill West Line, Wilmington/Newark Line, Cynwyd Line and the Trenton Line. Due to the amount of rainfall and flooding, it is highly unlikely the Norristown/Manayunk Linie will operate Tuesday, the agency said.

Riders are urged to check SEPTA’s websites for the latest updates at www.septa.org.
