Commuters trying to return to work today found buses and trains delayed, or in many cases, not running at all.
SEPTA bus service remained suspended on most suburban routes because of icy, snow-narrowed roads. In the city, a limited number of routes were operating.
On Regional Rail trains, service is up to 90 minutes late on lines that were running. The R-6/Cynwyd, R-7/Chestnut Hill East, and R-8/Fox Chase lines are not operating at all. The R-1/Airport is running hourly service, the R-2/Wilmington line was operating only between Marcus Hook and Center City, and the R-3/West Trenton line was operating only between Neshaminy Falls and Center City.
A lack of train crews, because of minimum-rest requirements and difficulty getting to work, slowed the return to normal service, said SEPTA spokesman Andrew Busch.
