January 2017 Regional Rail Schedule Change

New Regional Rail Schedules in Effect Sunday, January 29, 2017

The January schedule change expands on the weekday adjustments made in December 2016 and focuses on addressing congestion, the continued implementation of Positive Train Control, and train run times. Saturday and Sunday service will operate as currently scheduled.

Major changes to service and the January 29th PDF timetables are available below. Please check this page regularly for new information. Click on the links for changes to a specific line.


Airport Line Manayunk/Norristown Line
Chestnut Hill East Line Media/Elwyn Line
Chestnut Hill West Line Paoli/Thorndale Line
Cynwyd Line Trenton Line
Fox Chase Line Warminster Line
Glenside Combined West Trenton Line
Lansdale/Doylestown Line Wilmington/Newark Line


As part of the Authority's business commitment to follow sustainability practices, we continue to look for ways to sensibly conserve resources. Within this context, the close timing of the schedule changes planned for the initial phase of our Regional Rail Service Improvement Program - December 11, January 29, and April 9 - made us think about the best way to be fiscally and environmentally responsible while still being responsive to your need for information.

So we are taking a different approach for the January 29th schedule change by not be printing paper timetables. This gives us an opportunity to introduce/reintroduce Regional Rail customers to all of the other options we offer to get schedule and service information. Paper timetables will be available for the April schedule change, but we are hoping that you'll find one or more of the choices described below will become your preferred method to connect with our schedule information.


How can I view the Timetables?

Online:

  • PDF versions of the timetables are available to view below. If you wish, the PDF files can be downloaded from your computer and printed in an 8 1/2" x 11" format for reference with just a few steps:
    • Click on the printer icon/option (top right corner of the screen for most browsers)
    • A box will appear confirming you would like to print. Before you do, select "properties"
    • A new box will appear: select the "layout" tab and then select "portrait" (this will give you the best option to view the timetables)
    • Select "OK" and then "OK" again to print the schedule to your printer (TIP: If you are printing from a public computer, make sure to check with someone to ensure you are printing to the correct printer location)

  • Regional Rail Schedules page: Customers should check this page the day of the schedule change for the latest PDF version of the schedule


At Stations:

  • Look for the large format schedule posters with the January timetable information as well as notices highlighting the changes going into effect on your Line

  • The Passenger Services desks at our Center City Stations (A & B Section at Jefferson Station; across from the Ticket Office at Suburban Station; at Mezzanine Level at 30th Street Station) will also have copies of the schedule information and they can answer your travel questions
