PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — There still is no service for SEPTA’s Trenton Regional Rail Line following Tuesday night’s Amtrak derailment in Philadelphia.
KYW’s John McDevitt reports alternate service plans have been put into place for more than 12,000 weekly riders.
SEPTA is adding trains, additional parking and shuttle service for the West Trenton Line and the Frankford Transportation Center to accommodate the large number of travelers.
SEPTA says the best option for Trenton Line customers is to connect with SEPTA at the Frankford Transportation Center or the FTC to travel to and from Center City.
SEPTA’s Deputy General Manager Jeff Knuepple says among shuttles services added is at the Cornwells-Heights parking lot.
“The Cornwells-Heights is on the line that is shut down but we will take advantage of the large parking lots there to run a special bus shuttle. SEPTA will run this shuttle from Cornwells-Heights to FTC from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and at night from FTC back to Cornwells-Heights from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.,” Knuepple.
SEPTA says expect delays and crowds during commutes.
