Weekend disruptions on SEPTA’s Manayunk/Norristown rails

If you plan on traveling on SEPTA’s Manayunk/Norristown regional rail line this weekend, be aware of some service disruptions on Saturday and Sunday.

In order for PennDOT crews to finish up the two-year I-476 bridge rehabilitation project, SEPTA trains will not operate between Spring Mill and Elm Street stations on the former R6 line.

Shuttle buses are being used to transport passengers boarding at Elm Street, Main Street, Norristown Transportation Center, Conshohocken and Spring Mill to Wissahickon Station. Passengers heading to Center City will then board outbound trains at Wissahickon.

All shuttle buses heading to Wissahickon Station will leave Elm Street Station 29 minutes before scheduled train times and will continue on to pick up passengers at each station before arriving at Wissahickon.

Trains from Philadelphia will operate normally to Miquon Station. Passengers traveling beyond Miquon will transfer to buses at Wissahickon Station. Shuttle buses will operate directly to Spring Mill and continue to Conshohocken, Norristown Transportation Center, Main Street and Elm Street.

On Saturday, shuttle buses will also be provided inbound from Elm Street Station to Manayunk at 9:36 p.m., 10:39 p.m. and 11:36 p.m. Shuttle buses from Manayunk to Spring Mill Station (and continuing to Elm Street Station) will depart Manayunk at 1:09 a.m. and 2:09 a.m.

SEPTA crews will be available at Wissahickon Station to assist passengers with the service changes. In case of severe weather, busing on the Manayunk/Norristown Line will be rescheduled for the weekend of Apr. 2.
