June 4, 2014 Leave a comment
Night owls rejoice! Starting at midnight on June 15th, SEPTA will be offering 24 hour service for late night riders of the Market-Frankford and Broad Street Lines on Fridays, Saturdays and holidays. The pilot program, which has launched in response to Philadelphia’s increasing night-time activities and flourishing restaurant and night-life scene, will run through Labor Day Weekend.
Depending on how successful the pilot program is SEPTA may choose to extend late night service past the summer months.
Here are some of the main details:
SAFETY: Extra police officers will be present at all stations to ensure the safety of all passengers.
FARES & ENTRY: At major hubs and high ridership locations, riders can purchase fares at the entrance gate. At all other stations, riders will be able to go through the turnstiles and pay their fares to the train operator at the head of the train before entering. Exact change only, please!
FREQUENCY: Trains will run every 20 minutes between midnight and 5:00 a.m.
