Update: SEPTA's Plan for Tuesday

Hurricane Sandy could cause another day of cancelled service.

Update (7:05 p.m., Monday)

SEPTA announced its full plan for Tuesday in a release on its website. The statement is below.

Early Tuesday morning after the storm has passed through our area, SEPTA crews will inspect and assess the conditions of facilities, equipment and infrastructure in order to ascertain when service can be restored for all modes. This system-wide assessment process will take approximately 6 to 8 hours. The final decision to operate will be coordinated with the City's Office of Emergency Management and based on the safety of the public and our employees.

At this time, service on Tuesday cannot be guaranteed, although attempts will be made to restore some service by the afternoon.

It is anticipated that full service will resume on the Broad Street Line and Market-Frankford Line first, followed by bus and city trolley service with possible detours and cutbacks. Other modes of service - Regional Rail, Norristown High Speed Line and Route 101 and 102 Trolleys - which operate in areas prone to flooding and track obstructions, may be slower to return to service.

CCT - Paratransit Service has been able to accommodate scheduled dialysis patients today and is expected to honor dialysis reservations on Tuesday.

Based on Amtrak's notification that their Northeast Corridor service will be disrupted until Wednesday morning, the following Regional Rail Lines will suspended until further notice:

  • Paoli/ Thorndale Line
  • Airport Line
  • Chestnut Hill West Line
  • Wilmington/Newark Line
  • Cynwyd Line
  • Trenton Line

SEPTA won't know if its services will be back up Tuesday until well into the morning of Oct. 30, the company said via it's twitter feed Monday.

The transportation company plans to analyze road and track conditions Tuesday morning beginning at 5 a.m., with any decision on reinstated service to come after that.

"Restoration of service Tuesday isn't guaranteed and will be coordinated with the city's office of emergency management," the company said through its twitter feed.

According to a report from the Philadelphia Metro, the Broad Street and Market-Frankford lines would be the first to resume service, followed by trolly service. You can read their full report here.

SEPTA suspended service early Monday morning to limit exposure to Hurricane Sandy.

Patch will have more on this as it develops.

Yikes! Some negativity on this thread. I am a daily commuter from North Hills to Center City. I was actually quite pleased to see Septa back up so quickly.
