SEPTA Government Affairs has provided us with information if there is a City Transit Division work stoppage as SEPTA will implement a service interruption plan, and full alternate service information will be posted on SEPTA’s website – http://www.septa.org.
It is important to note that an authorization vote does not necessarily mean there will be a work stoppage when the contract expires and SEPTA management and TWU Local 234 leadership have been engaged in productive, good faith negotiations in recent months.
In the meantime, to help prepare your employees for service that would be impacted in the event of a work stoppage, the following is an overview of the services that would be suspended and those that will continue to operate.
The key takeaway for Bucks County is Regional Rail will operate with more frequent service. Express trains may make additional stops to accommodate the anticipated ridership increase. Station announcements will be made for any service changes.
What SEPTA Service Will Run?
