Runners take your mark. Riders take note. There are a number of bus detours this Saturday, 11/18 and Sunday, 11/19 due to road closures for the 2017 Philadelphia Marathon and related events. Detailed detour information can be found here.

On Saturday, 11/18 for the Philadelphia Half-Marathon, Rothman 8K and Kids Run, SEPTA Routes 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 12, 16, 17, 21, 23, 25, 27, 30, 31, 32, 33, 38, 40, 42, 47, 47M, 48, 57, 61, 64, 124 and 125 will be detoured beginning at 6a. Buses will return to their regular routes as close to the end of the events as possible.

On Sunday, 11/19, for the Philadelphia Marathon, SEPTA Routes 7, 32, 33, 38, 43 and 48 will be placed on detour beginning at 2a to accommodate course set-up and the marathon. Routes K, R, 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 12, 16, 17, 21, 23, 25, 27, 30, 31, 32, 33, 35, 38, 40, 42, 43, 47, 47M, 48, 57, 61, 64, 65, 124 and 125 will begin detours at 6a through the conclusion of the race events on Sunday afternoon. Buses will return to their regular routes as close to the end of the events as possible.

The Route 15 Trolley will also be detoured and will operate as two different bus routes on both 11/18 and 11/19 (beginning at 6a), one for West Philadelphia and one for North Philadelphia/Fishtown. There will be no service between 40th and 29th Streets. Customers who need to use both routes can connect via the Market-Frankford Line (Girard & 40th Streets).

To avoid delays while traveling through Center City, bus passengers are encouraged to use SEPTA Regional Rail, subways and trolleys where possible. Nearby stations including City Hall on the Broad Street Line; 15th Street on the Market-Frankford Line and for Trolley Routes 11, 13, 34 and 36; and Suburban Station for Regional Rail lines provide easy walking access to the Parkway for runners and spectators.

Service updates will be available here and via the @SEPTA Twitter feed. Customer service representatives are available by phone at 215-580-7800 and on Twitter at @SEPTA_Social.
