    Uber Discount From Some SEPTA Regional Rail Stations

    It's not just Tuesday morning, the rest of the summer could really be a headache for commuters who ride SEPTA's Regional Rails.

    Might be a good time to check out that Uber discount.

    SEPTA and Uber have a pilot program going where riders automatically get 40-percent off if you get picked up or dropped off at select Regional Rail stations.

    There are two important things to know: the discount is good on fares up to $10. And because it's a pilot program, there are 11 stations where you can get the discount. They are among the busiest stations with highest ridership, according to SEPTA's website.

    Here's the list with addresses:

    Glenside: 49 W. Glenside Avenue, Glenside PA 19038

    Jenkintown: 2 Greenwood Avenue, Jenkintown PA 19046

    Elkins Park: 7876 Spring Avenue, Elkins Park PA 19027

    Melrose Park: 900 Valley Road, Melrose Park, PA 19027

    Warminster: 100 Station Drive, Warminster, PA 18974

    Doylestown: 130 S. Clinton Avenue, Doylestown, PA 18901

    Lansdale: 80 W. Main Street, Lansdale, PA 19446

    Woodbourne: 903 Woodbourne Road, Langhorne, PA 19047

    Swarthmore: Park Avenue & Chester Road (Route 320), Swarthmore, PA 19081

    Wayne: 145 N. Wayne Avenue, Wayne, PA 19087

    Exton: 445 Walkertown Road (Off PA Route 100), Exton, PA 19341

    The discount gets automatically applied to your Uber fare if you get picked up or dropped off in the parking lot of any of those 11 stations.

    The promotion runs through Labor Day, which is about how long it's expected to take for SEPTA to get 1/3 of its fleet back on the tracks. The cars were taken out of operation this weekend after a structural defect was discovered.

    In terms of seats, that's about 13,000 fewer seats available for the 65,000 riders who typically use the Regional rails.
