Due to the expectance of Hurricane Irene this weekend, SEPTA will cease all transportation operations at 12:30 a.m. Sunday.

All trips scheduled after 12:30 a.m. Sunday will be cancelled. Service is not expected to resume until at least mid-day Sunday, following damage assessments and repairs. Service will resume on a route-by-route basis, based on conditions.

SEPTA strongly urges all customers who normally ride the system during this time period to make arrangements to go to your destination well in advance of the storm and be prepared to remain safely at that location until the storm has passed and service has resumed.

Announcements regarding the resumption of service will be announced through the Office of the Mayor of Philadelphia and SEPTA’s website www.septa.org

All SEPTA employees normally assigned to work during the period of the shutdown – or who are assigned to emergency duty – are required to report to work at their assigned locations.
