Introducing Options to Customize the App & Real Time Vehicle Locator for Regional Rail

SEPTA is launching a new version of its Official App for Apple and Android devices to enhance the travel tools you use the most while creating a more customized and personal experience right from your mobile device.

The new app was built with customer comments and feedback received in mind. It offers greater ease to check schedules and find service information. We're also launching some big customer information improvements with the rollout of our Real Time Vehicle Locator technology. With location updates for Regional Rail trains, about every 30 seconds, the app will deliver the most current information about scheduled service and in-service delays.

This real time data will also be displayed on signage at stations and the SEPTA website to give you a better, more accurate look at the SEPTA system no matter where you are or what device you're using.

TrainView & TransitView:

We are also launching a new version of our popular TrainView tool that will give you a visual and interactive way to track when your train will arrive. See the location of your train and track its progress on an interactive map. Select your train's icon to see its origin, next stop, and current status. We've also launched the new TransitView tool for the app and the SEPTA website.

If you prefer to use the current version of TrainView, just visit trainview.septa.org

TrainView Features:

  • Real time vehicle information now available for trains that operate on Amtrak territory
  • System alerts and advisories currently found in the System Status tool are now available right from TrainView so that you can immediately see the location of your trains and any changes to service from the same screen


This new version of TrainView, available on the SEPTA website, will automatically format to any device so you can view it from your computer at work, your mobile phone, or tablet without having to adjust the size.

App Features:

  • Simple, easy to understand navigation to get you directly to your preferred mode of travel
  • "Favorite" your commute or frequent trip to see when your next bus, train or trolley arrives
  • Get real-time travel information with the Next to Arrive feature and check for alerts or advisories right from the same screen
  • Easier to navigate Alerts page with service advisories, detours, and now weather information all within the same place
  • Improved layout for selecting and viewing schedules and the duration of your trip
