Lengthy delays on public transit and heavy snowfall caused a rumor that SEPTA would shutdown its operations Tuesday afternoon. But officials say SEPTA will continue to operate, albeit with adjustments, during the storm.

As of 7 a.m. Wednesday, the Route 35 bus remained suspended. All regional rail lines and trolleys are operating, some lines are experiencing delays. Bus routes throughout the region are experiencing delays of up to 30 minutes and 20 bus routes are operating with detours, according to SEPTA. Get current SEPTA system status information here.

SEPTA passengers experienced long delays Tuesday as a snowstorm blanketed the Philadelphia region. The early release of many employees pushed Tuesday's rush hour to start at noon, when most trains werel running less frequently.

The high volume combined with the weather conditions caused some train delays Tuesday and by evening all regional rail lines were operating with delays of up to 60 minutes.

Customized Community Transportation, which provides paratransit service, will be running Wednesday.

CCT passengers should anticipate delays due to the accumulated snow and icy conditions on streets and sidewalks. Anyone checking the status of pending day trips or cancelling service should call 215-580-7720.
