Regional Rail Riders: Make an Alternate Plan

I am one of the 60,000 people who use SEPTA's Regional Rail on a daily basis.  As the ads say, it is better than driving.  I love SEPTA!  The possible Regional Rail strike, which could start this weekend, would have a major impact on the city, the suburbs, and life in the tri-state area generally.

So, like the other 59,999 regular train riders, I have to make an alternate transit plan.  SEPTA has set up a site that will let us do that.  Check out: -- it will let you know which buses, subways, etc. to take to get where you need to go, if it is possible to do.

The city lines (Broad Street, Market Frankford, Norristown High Speedline, trolleys, and buses) will still run.  SEPTA is making plans for more frequent runs and room for increased ridership on these lines.

Let's hope things get worked out and the trains still run, but just in case, plan ahead.
