Beginning with the first run Saturday morning August 20, through end of service on Sunday, August 28, 2022 - buses will replace all Route 101 & 102 Trolleys between 69th Street Transportation Center and Media (Orange Street) and Sharon Hill Stations.
Customers should plan for approximately 15 minutes of additional travel time and look for signage at stations for bus boarding locations.
During this outage, SEPTA and 3rd party contractors will be testing trolleys and signals from 6AM to 6PM daily between Drexel Hill Junction (Drexel Hill) and Orange Street (Media).
When not in use, trolleys will be staged at Woodland Ave. Station (Springfield) and will be shut down overnight to avoid nighttime idling.
SEPTA is committed to providing safe, reliable service to our customers and the communities we serve, and this shuttle bus substitution is necessary to allow SEPTA and third-party forces to safely perform track construction, rehabilitate signals and interlockings and upgrade with a signal modernization project along the Route 101 and 102 Trolley Lines.
Full details on the Route 101 & 102 shuttle busing, including downloadable timetables, will be posted on the Route 101/102 Service Improvement Program page here.
SEPTA greatly appreciates your patience and understanding while these important improvements are being made.
