SEPTA would like to advise customers about extra late-night Regional Rail service available on New Year’s Eve, and some adjustments to bus service on New Year’s Day to accommodate the Mummers Parade.
New Year’s Eve
SEPTA Regional Rail riders traveling to Philadelphia’s Penn’s Landing and New York City’s Times Square to ring in the New Year can take advantage of extended late night service to get home from the celebrations.
Additional late night train service has been added for passengers traveling from Philadelphia to Warminster, West Trenton, Lansdale, Manayunk-Norristown, Fox Chase, Chestnut Hill East, Trenton, Elwyn, Wilmington, Malvern and Chestnut Hill West. The late night New Year’s Eve trains are scheduled to leave Center City after the midnight fireworks display at Penn’s Landing.
After watching the ball drop in Times Square, passengers taking early morning New Jersey Transit trains can connect with SEPTA at the Trenton Transportation Center. SEPTA trains will depart from Trenton at 2:03 a.m., 3:30 a.m., 5 a.m. and 6 a.m.

New Year’s Day
Road closures for the Mummers Parade will impact travel on a number of bus routes that operate on and around Broad Street in South Philadelphia and Center City on New Year’s Day.
Starting at 7 a.m., the following bus routes will go on detour to accommodate the parade: 2, 4, 7, 9, 12, 16, 17, 21, 23, 27, 29, 31, 32, 33, 37, 38, 42, 44, 48, 62, 64, 68, 79, 124/125 and G.
Some bus customers may be able to use the Broad Street Line subway as an alternate for travel to-and-from points in Center City and South Philadelphia during the parade. Buses will resume normal operations as soon as possible after the parade. Details on the routing for each detour will be available at http://www.septa.org/realtime/status/system-status.shtml.
