PLANNING & SCHEDULING

New Paper Timetables

Paper timetables with a September 30, 2018 effective date were printed for all Regional Rail Lines with the exception of the Lansdale/Doylestown Line, which has a current printed timetable with an August 5, 2018 effective date.

The printed Regional Rail timetables, with the September 30, 2018 date, will reflect recent changes in service due to improvement projects, Amtrak construction, late night service adjustments, and other changes.

All of these changes are already noted on the timetables posted on septa.org. September 30 is the publication date for the paper timetables - there are no new changes in service going into effect on this date.

Amtrak - Northeast Corridor Track Work
Impacting Trenton Regional Rail Line - UPDATE

In March, Amtrak began work to improve track conditions on the Northeast Corridor (NEC) between Trenton Transit Center and Holmesburg Junction. The project involves the rebuilding of track structure in this area to replace infrastructure that began to deteriorate before the end of its useful life.

The scope of the work requires taking track out of service for extended and continuous periods of time, which is creating an impact at 8 stations (Trenton Transit Center, Levittown, Bristol, Croydon, Eddington, Cornwells Heights, Torresdale and Holmesburg Junction) served by the Trenton Regional Rail Line. Additionally, as part of this work, the inner track fencing is temporarily being removed, which creates concerns for the safety of SEPTA customers.

While this project is reducing the number of tracks available for train service the amount of traffic generated by Amtrak, SEPTA, and freight carrier service is not reduced. As the owner of NEC, Amtrak is responsible for dispatching all trains, including ours. SEPTA is working to coordinate with Amtrak on dispatching issues, but more often than not, their service gets first priority and our trains must follow the instructions provided by Amtrak.

IMPORTANT SAFETY REMINDER

As part of the Amtrak track work, the inner track fencing is temporarily being removed at Stations but it is critically important that NO ONE try to cross this very active right of way. Amtrak trains traveling towards Philadelphia and New York travel at high rates of speed and they are NOT making station stops. Even if the Engineer sees you they will not be able to stop in time. Customers are also reminded to stand behind the yellow line while waiting on the station platform.

HELP PREVENT A TRAGEDY. PLEASE DON'T RISK YOUR LIFE OR THE SAFETY OF OTHERS - ONLY USE THE DESIGNATED PEDESTRIAN PATHWAYS AT SEPTA STATIONS

Amtrak continues to make progress on their Northeast Corridor Track Replacement Project, with rail, tie, surfacing, signal, and wire work on-going. The Amtrak track work will continue through the end of this calendar year.
