PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) - PHILADELPHIA, PA – As Winter Storm Jonas winds down, SEPTA is working toward restoring service on bus, trolley and rail lines that have been suspended since 4 a.m. Saturday.
“There are number of challenges resulting from the storm, which has delivered snowfall totals that exceeded forecasted amounts,” said SEPTA General Manager Jeffrey D. Knueppel. The snow has pushed the expected 4 a.m. start time to 10 a.m. for many of our services, and even longer for certain routes and lines.
Below is an update on the status of SEPTA’s services for Sunday:
Bus: Routes 9, 14, 15B, 20, 21, 37, 42, 50, 52, 54, 56, 58, 60, 66, 70, 78, 79, 84, 93, 104, 109, 110, 111, 113, 124 and 125 are operating. Customers should check the System Status section at www.septa.org for detour information.
