SEPTA to Resume Rail Service on Chestnut Hill Line

Rail operations on the Chestnut Hill West Regional Rail line will resume on a limited basis on March 7, the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority said.

Service on the line was suspended last March during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic when SEPTA scaled back rail operations overall.

Under the new schedule, rail service on the Chestnut Hill line will consist of “several trains” operating between 6:30 a.m. and 7 p.m.

Details about when those trains will run have yet to be released.

Aside from the pandemic, which has depressed public transit use, SEPTA also cited Amtrak construction that would have made operating the Chestnut Hill service unreliable.
