An 11 trolley collided with a car at 4-Main Sts in Darby Borough at around 6:30am today, causing massive delays on the 11 and 13 (the 13 dead-heads to Yeadon via Main St and 9 St in Darby. This was less than 2 hours before bus bridges were supposed to start on the 11 between Island Av and Darby Loop due to CSX track work on Main St.
On Thursday, the operator shortage at Red Arrow hit a new low, as runs on the 103, 104 (the evening short turns to Newtown Square after 7:30pm were not filled) and 120 were not covered. Red Arrow commuters can vent their frustrations on Thursday, November 14, when SEPTA holds an on-site session at 69 St Terminal between 6:30am and 8:30am. That should make for an interesting day to say the least.
For the first time that I can recall, SEPTA is posting schedules for it's "SEPTA On-Site" for the remainder of 2002. Media and Sharon Hill riders should be aware that a SOS event will take place at Drexel Hill Jct/Shadeland Av station tomorrow morning between 7:00am and 9:00am. Another event is scheduled for Chester Transportation Center at the same times, but on Wednesday, October 30.
