SEPTA has received word from Amtrak that work will be conducted to replace a switch that will disrupt services for certain regional rail lines operating from the 30th Street Station from September 30 – October 10. Impacted regional rail services include the Chestnut Hill East, Chestnut Hill West, Cynwyd, and Trenton rail lines. Due to the scope of work, some scheduled trains will be canceled during this time.

Due to construction occurring at 40th Street between Walnut and Locust Streets, Penn Buses and Penn Shuttles have been temporarily rerouted since this area is closed to vehicular traffic. Passengers who normally are picked up or dropped off at the Schattner Building may go to the corner of 40th and Walnut Streets to access Penn Bus East, Penn Bus West, and portions of Penn Shuttle services.
Construction work began August 28 and is anticipated to last approximately five weeks and will occur Tuesdays - Fridays from 7 p.m. until 5 a.m.
