Upgrades to Fox Chase Regional Rail Line

June 6, 2022

SEPTA will begin a month-long project to enhance Regional Rail infrastructure as part of the Fox Chase Improvement Program.

The work is scheduled to take place from July 5, 2022 through July 29, 2022 and will require major service adjustments that will impact customers who use the Fox Chase Line.

During this time, shuttle buses will replace all trains between Fox Chase and Wayne Junction stations. Train service will be available between Wayne Junction Station and Center City.

These upgrades along the Fox Chase Line will improve service reliability, on-time performance, and provide a more comfortable ride.

Upcoming work highlights include:

• Installing catenary structure

• Clearing vegetation

• Surfacing track

• Replacing wood ties

• Waterproofing an under-grade bridge

In addition, crews will start preparation work for upcoming enhancements to the Lawndale Station.

Parking at Regional Rail stations will continue to be free through December. Daily parking rates will apply for the Fox Chase parking facility, which is operated by the Philadelphia Parking Authority. The Sales Offices at Fox Chase, Cheltenham, and Wayne Junction Stations will be open normal weekday hours.

SEPTA encourages riders to join a webinar to learn more about the Fox Chase Improvement Program, as well as other summer maintenance projects. The session is scheduled today, Monday, June 6, 2022 from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. Members of the public may register for the webinar here.
