SEPTA Service for Obama Rally

SEPTA is adding capacity on some Regional Rail line trains and bolstering some bus service on Sunday to serve riders travelling to see President Obama during his visit to Philadelphia .

The President is visiting Fulton High School , located at 60 East Haines Street in Germantown , Sunday afternoon. Extra capacity will be added to regularly scheduled trains on the Chestnut Hill East and Chestnut Hill West Regional Rail lines. The Germantown Station on the Chestnut Hill East Line is the closest rail stop to the school (about two blocks). Customers can also use the Chestnut Hill West Line to either the Chelten or Tulpenhocken stations and walk north to the school or transfer to a SEPTA bus.

Additional buses will be added to routes 23 and 65 for extra service. Bus routes J, K, XH, 18 and 26 also provide service near the school.

SEPTA encourages all customers travelling in the area on Sunday to be on alert for possible delays or possible road closures. For more information, visit
