No on-board purchase for regional rail

Recommended Posts

Due to the transit strike & resulting service interruptions which are causing regional rail lines to become saturated with passengers, all tickets must be purchased in advance of boarding for the duration of the strike and resulting service disruption.

 

If you need help with ticket purchasing, please contact SEPTA at 215-580-7800

 

If possible find alternate transportation, carpooling is recommended.

Wait, a majority of SEPTA stations have no ticketing facilities available. How do they expect riders to buy tickets before boarding, especially those who are using RR as an alternate to the MFL/BSL?

 

Also, 101 trolley and 102 shuttle buses are suspended, apparently due to the strike, even though SEPTA said they will run.

People are being advised to purchase tickets at stations with tickets, such as 30th etc.

And how will you be able to get to 30th??!!!?

 

Typically people who need the train and ride every day have monthly passes. Fares wouldn't be collected on trains serving stations without purchasing provisions, it's up to the train crew since every terminal station has ticket purchasing as far as i know, as well as the hub stations. They suggested carpooling because of the priority of trying to get as many ticket holding folks on as possible before non ticket holders. It's not a good situation, it's a real pain in the arse mess, but it's not business as usual, and the system, with 2 serious accidents in 2 days is coping rather well given circumstances.
