(Updated: Amtrak has announced it will resume rail service between Philadelphia and New York Monday, May 18. Service begins with departures from Philadelphia at 5:53 a.m. (Train 110) and New York City at 5:30 a.m. (Train 111), all Amtrak Acela Express, Northeast Regional and other services resume.)
The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority released the following statement Sunday at 9:32 p.m
SEPTA will resume operations on the Trenton Regional Rail Line with the start of the service day on Monday, May 18. This follows Amtrak’s announcement of restoration of service on the Northeast Corridor effective Monday morning.
Due to an anticipated reduction in the number of operating tracks, inbound trains (to Center City) will stop at all but North Philadelphia Station. Outbound (to Trenton) trains will stop at all stations except North Philadelphia, Bridesburg and Tacony. Service to and from these stations is tentatively expected to resume sometime later on Monday. Customers can find alternate modes of travel on SEPTA’s website.
Customers using the Trenton Line on Monday should expect delays as this service restoration moves forward. Also, SEPTA is advising customers who use the Chestnut Hill East Regional Rail Line to anticipate similar delays, since most trains traveling to and from Trenton also serve the Chestnut Hill East Line. Please also note that the West Trenton Line will return to a normal schedule tomorrow; enhanced service was added last week for displaced Trenton Line riders.
SEPTA will provide travel updates on its website,, on Twitter @SEPTA, and via releases to the news media.
