SCHEDULES CHANGE Schedules for most City Division routes changed on Sunday. The major highlight of the new picking is the "temporary" conversion of the 29 from trackless operation to diesel bus for the next four years. As part of the 29's conversion, service will be extended from Front and Tasker to Pier 70. This may very well spell the end of the line for trackless service along Tasker and Morris in South Philly. This may also mark the beginning of the end of trackless trolleys on the 79 as well, but nothing has been said about the 79's status. Other major highlights will be posted within the next few days (I am presently in the process of moving for the first time in three years, so updates may be sporadic).
