With more protests anticipated across the city, the transit agency suspended subway, bus and trolley service, starting at noon, until further notice.
The Market-Frankford Line is only operating between 69th Street and 30th Street, and between Spring Garden and the Frankford Transportation Center.
“At this point, we would expect it would be in effect for a good part of the day, if not the entire day,” said SEPTA spokesperson Andrew Busch.
SEPTA also reported on Twitter that West Trenton, Norristown, Cynwyd, Chestnut Hill West and Chestnut Hill East Regional Rail service remains suspended because of the COVID-19 crisis.
Busch said access to limited Regional Rail service will still be available at both Suburban and Jefferson stations, where SEPTA police will limit access only to riders.
Spokesperson John Golden added SEPTA employees are all essential workers under the city’s guidelines.
“We anticipate them getting back on line so our system can run as efficiently as possible,” he said.
Commuters are encouraged to check SEPTA’s website or Twitter feed for real-time updates.
Monday marks the third day of rampant protests-turned-riots across Philadelphia in response to the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd.
