New Regional Rail Schedules

Schedule change

The January schedule change expands on the weekday adjustments made in December 2016 and focuses on addressing congestion, the continued implementation of Positive Train Control, and train run times. Saturday and Sunday service will operate as currently scheduled.

As part of the Authority's business commitment to follow sustainability practices, we continue to look for ways to sensibly conserve resources. Within this context, the close timing of the schedule changes planned for the initial phase of our Regional Rail Service Improvement Program - December 11, January 29, and April 9 - made us think about the best way to be fiscally and environmentally responsible while still being responsive to your need for information. So we are taking a different approach for the January 29 schedule change by not be printing paper timetables. This gives us an opportunity to introduce/reintroduce Regional Rail customers to all of the other options we offer to get schedule and service information. Paper timetables will be available for the April schedule change, but we are hoping that you'll find one or more of the choices described below will become your preferred method to connect with our schedule information.

PDF versions of the timetables are available to view below. You can also check this page the day of the schedule change for the latest PDF version of the schedule.

At stations, look for the large format schedule posters with the January timetable information as well as notices highlighting the changes going into effect on your Line. The Passenger Services desks at our Center City Stations (A & B Section at Jefferson Station; across from the Ticket Office at Suburban Station; at Mezzanine Level at 30th Street Station) will also have copies of the schedule information and they can answer your travel questions.

Don't forget - real-time service information for your Regional Rail Line can be delivered directly to your phone or tablet. Check out our RESOURCES page for more info and tips.
