MARATHON IMPACTS Sunday will not be a good day for passengers who would normally take the R1 Airport Line. With the Rail Power Project shuttle buses still in effect and the Philadlephia Marathon taking place on Sunday, SEPTA has decided to run buses from Eastwick, University City, 30 St, and Market East instead of the more convoluted University City to Eastwick via Center City and the Airport, as Arch St will be closed. This is in addition to detours on virtually every single SEPTA route which serves Center City, Wissahickon Transfer Center, Manayunk, and Ridge Av (or any combination thereof). Most Wissahickon Transfer buses will board and alight at Ridge and Midvale. The affected routes include the 2, 5, 9, 17, 21, 27, 32, 33, 35, 38, 40, 42, 43, 48, 61, 65, 124/125, C, and R.
