It appears that the 9 will finally be moving from Allegheny to Midvale starting with the fall picking. Allegheny, which had become an all-artic depot four years ago, continued to operate the 9, even though most ridership counts had shown that ridership on the line can't support articulated buses.

On a related note, there's a rumor floating around that the 35 will be consolidated with the 9 at some point in the next fiscal year. Nothing is finalized yet, nor has any formal proposal been brought forward. If SEPTA attempts to consolidate the 35 into the 9, then you can expect a lot of yelling and screaming from Manayunk, which considers the 35 it's life-line.
