An cyclist v. trolley accident disrupted service on the 10 earlier this afternoon. Channel 6 reports that an eastbound 10 struck a cyclist at 61-Lansdowne shortly after 13:45 today. Few details are available right now, but the victim was taken to Penn with non-life threatening injuries...

Not too long after that incident, service on the 36 is operating shuttle buses between 49-Woodland and Penrose Plaza loop due to an accident at 68-Elmwood. As of 15:36, Control Center was attempting to round up buses to cover a bus bridge. So far, there was an attempt to raise at least one deadheading 21 bus to cover the bus bridge. In addition, because of the stalled trolleys along Elmwood, bus service on the 108 and school trippers from Southwest Philadelphia has also been impacted.

At 15:51, the Control Center declared the line open with service returning to normal, though there are residual delays along the 36.
