PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Thursday’s storm caused trouble on the area’s mass transit systems.
Some of the biggest issues were the SEPTA bus routes. At the start of service Friday morning, nearly 34 of them were suspended and most others were detoured or offering limited service. By 2:30 p.m., only routes 30, 35, 39, 47M, 89, and J remained suspended. Riders should check SEPTA’s website (via the Travel Guide below) for information on their bus.
Regional Rail lines have resumed operations, but passengers may experience delays of up to 60 minutes on the Trenton Line, up to 20 minutes on all others due to winter weather conditions. Trolley service had also resumed, but the Route 101 was only operating between 69th Street Transportation Center and Monroe Street until further notice.
NJT and PATCO are operating with minor delays.
Philadelphia International Airport is reporting some early flight cancellations. Passengers are urged to check with their individual airlines or the airport website for information on their flight.
