SEPTA, NJ Transit to cease all operations Sunday

    Just in case you didn’t get the message, there’s a hurricane coming and you really need to get prepared. That now involves making alternate transportation plans if you intend to be crazy enough to go somewhere.

    SEPTA is shutting down Sunday. As of 12:30 a.m., trains, trolleys, buses, subway lines and hovercrafts (no, those last ones don’t actually exist) will suspend operations.

    Officials with New Jersey Transit have announced all rail service will be suspended beginning at noon Saturday. Waiting rooms at stations controlled by New Jersey Transit will remain open throughout the weekend.  Information regarding New Jersey Transit bus schedules will be forthcoming.

    Philadelphia can expect heavy rains with winds of up to 70 mph. The city has released a handy guide to dealing with the storm, which you can access here.
