    Philadelphia commuter trains will run special service to two of the city's three main stations during Pope Francis' September visit, shuttling passengers from a limited number of suburban outposts.

    SEPTA said Monday that trains on six lines will stop at Jefferson Station and four will stop at 30th Street Station.

    The Media/Elwyn line and some Airport Line trains will terminate at University City.

    Suburban Station won't operate during the Sept. 26-27 visit. It's located near where more than 1 million people are expected for a Papal Mass.

    Passengers must have a $10 Papal Visit pass, available online July 20. They must specify their home station and select a window of time they're traveling when purchasing the one-day passes.

    SEPTA's limiting how many passes are available to keep crowds consistent with capacity.
