SERVICE ADVISORY | Market Frankford Line - Supplemental Bus Service:

Service page for additional information

A crack in a body bolster (a main load carrying structural beam) was
uncovered this weekend on one Market Frankford Line car undergoing a
scheduled vehicle overhaul. Subsequent inspections revealed an additional
car with a crack. In the interest of safety, we took a proactive measure
to temporarily pull from service some of the fleet that have indications
of a crack. All Market Frankford Line trains currently in service and
those that will be in operation on Monday have been inspected. Having
taken this step, adjustments to Market Frankford Line service will be made
beginning with Monday, February 6, 2017.

.


.

Market Frankford Line trains will continue in operation between 69th
Street Transportation Center and Frankford Transportation Center and will
make stops but we will be 30-40 cars short of the 144 needed to run
regular, weekday peak hour service levels.

.         

During AM and PM peak travel hours we anticipate the trains and platforms
will become very crowded. To ensure the safety of customers we will
supplement Market Frankford service with shuttle buses, serving select
stations, during the AM Peak - 6:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m. and PM Peak - 3:00
p.m. - 7:00 p.m. (see details below).

.
 
SEPTA will have personnel at each station, during the hours noted above,
monitoring crowding conditions. They will determine if customers can be
directed to the train platform or to the shuttle bus but we ask you to be
prepared to use a shuttle bus if you are traveling from one of the
stations noted below.

.

This remains a fluid situation and we will continue to keep you updated on
any service changes and the work to return cars to the fleet.
General Service Information

A & B stop service will be suspended

If you are directed to the Supplemental Shuttle Bus during AM/PM peak
travel times, please board at the designed Market Frankford Line Owl Bus 
stop for that station

SEPTA Trolley service may be an alternate option for travel
