Revelers heading to Philadelphia’s Penn’s Landing or New York City’s Times Square to ring in 2011 can take advantage of extended SEPTA late night Regional Rail service to get home from the celebrations.
SEPTA has added additional late night trains to Trenton, Elwyn, Marcus Hook, Malvern, Chestnut Hill West, Warminster, West Trenton, Lansdale, Norristown, Fox Chase and Chestnut Hill East, scheduled to leave Center City after the midnight fireworks at Penn’s Landing. For example, the last train to Chestnut Hill West on a Friday evening normally leaves Market East at 11:47 p.m. With the extended New Year’s Eve late night schedule, the last train will leave Market East at 1:40 a.m., giving riders ample time to enjoy the aerial spectacular and make their way to the train station.
Riders travelling to New York to see the ball drop in Times Square can also connect with SEPTA at the Trenton Transportation Center. SEPTA trains will depart Trenton at 4 a.m., 5 a.m. and 6 a.m. for passengers taking early morning New Jersey Transit trains from New York’s Penn Station.
