Chestnut Hill West Line to Return

February 25, 2021

The Chestnut Hill West Line was suspended last spring as SEPTA made system-wide adjustments due to the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Limited weekday service will resume on the Chestnut Hill West Line on Monday, March 8, 2021 as part of a scheduled Regional Rail schedule change.

Service will run from 5:51AM until approximately 8PM.

Amtrak and SEPTA will continue to perform state of good repair track and tunnel work during overnight and weekend hours along the Chestnut Hill West Line through 2021.

The March schedule change will also affect other Regional Rail Lines. These changes are necessary to improve service reliability and to accommodate ongoing track work. These schedules go into effect on Sunday, March 7. Here are some highlights:

Media/Elwyn: Weekday midday service will be adjusted for state of good repair track and overheadwire work.

Paoli/Thorndale: Weekday midday service will be adjusted to run hourly between 8:51AM and 2:50PM. Early morning service and service after 3PM will operate every 30 minutes.

West Trenton: Morning service from West Trenton will be adjusted to depart earlier to accommodate early morning travel to Center City and connecting service to Penn Medicine Station.
