View Comments ()




    An unattended package found in Center City Friday sparked an investigation by authorities and forced SEPTA to alter its transit operations as commuters began heading out of work.

    Police discovered the unattended package at the 15th and Market streets SEPTA station around 3:50 p.m. and quickly determined the item was not dangerous.

    Transit authorities operated shuttle buses in place of the Market-Frankford Line between the 5th Street station and 30th Street stations for about 20 minutes during the early Friday rush hour due to the police activity.

    The El resumed service around 4:10 p.m.
