A final check of the SEPTA real-time status website shows that nearly all of the buses are running on a normal schedule. The exception is any bus that normally comes down Market Street or 5th or 6th streets where the Hillary Clinton campaign rally is underway on Independence Mall.
The best way to see if you’re bus route is running at full capacity is to visit SEPTA’s real-time status board. These are the key symbols to look for next to each route.
All trolleys are now operating.
Routes 10, 11, 13, 15, 34 and 36 that were impacted by the strike have resumed service.
The Route 101 and 102 Trolleys are operating with normal service. These routes were not affected by strike.
Philadelphia’s subway system is almost at 100%.
The Market/Frankford Line is not stopping at 5th Street because of the Hillary Clinton campaign rally. Subways arriving every 10 minutes.
The Broadstreet Line is not running express trains. The subway is stopping at every station. Subways arriving every 10 minutes.
The Norristown High Speed line operations are normal.
There could be long lines for SEPTA’s Regional Rail trains this evening, since bus and trolley service was so limited this morning. We are still seeing some delays between 5-15 minutes.
Fastest way to see your train’s status is SEPTA’s real-time TrainView board.
