PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — The Philadelphia region is gradually coming out of its coronavirus restrictions, and some mass transit service is being restored.
On Monday, SEPTA is reopening stations on the Broad Street and Market-Frankford lines that have been closed since April for COVID-19.
The seven stations reopening Monday are Tasker-Morris and Wyoming on the Broad Street Line, Chinatown on the Broad Street Spur, and York-Dauphin, 13th Street, 63rd Street and Millbourne on the Market-Frankford Line.
Only Susquehanna-Dauphin on the Broad Street Line and 5th Street on the El will stay closed for ongoing construction.
Also as of Monday, there will be service on all but two Regional Rail lines — the Chestnut Hill West and Cynwyd lines — which will remain suspended.
PATCO is preparing to move to its summer schedule on Monday, but DRPA spokesman Mike Williams said the four stations that are currently closed — Ashland, Westmont, Camden City Hall and 12th/13th and Locust — are going to remain closed because ridership is only at 18% of normal levels.
NJ Transit plans to return to full weekday schedules on July 6.
