SEPTA City Transit Division Strike Update

Transit News | November 1st, 2016

At 12:00 midnight on October 31, 2016 the contract between SEPTA and the Transport Workers Union Local 234 expired. SEPTA City Transit service is now suspended and its alternate service plan will be in effect until further notice.

For travel within the city of Philadelphia, the only service option is Regional Rail so it is important to look at the Service Interruption Guide to see if your travel needs can be accommodated.

In Bucks County, all SEPTA Regional Rail & 100-series bus routes will continue to run on modified schedules. Full details HERE.

The Richboro-Warminster rushbus and Bristol rushbus will also operate.
