SEPTA announced Sunday that several lines suspended during the massive blizzard that walloped the region for more than 24 hours over the weekend have been restored, but others remained suspended.

The Market-Frankford and Broad Street lines were running on or close to their normal schedules on Sunday, according to SEPTA.

Regional Rail lines, however, remained suspended. The Transit Authority said SEPTA and Amtrak workers would work "around the clock" to clear stations and ensure lines are safe. Officials expected Regional Rail service to be restored by Monday, but with delays.

Service on Philadelphia trolley routes 10, 11, 13, 15, 34 and 36 were restored Sunday, but with delays. In the suburbs, service on the Route 101 trolley between 69th Street and Providence Road was expected to resume with delays at 10 a.m. SEPTA said Route 102 would likely return later Sunday, but did not provide a timetable for that return.

The Norristown High Speed Line was still undergoing clearing Sunday morning, but SEPTA officials said they expected to restore service between 69th Street and Bryn Mawr later Sunday. Service between Bryn Mawr and Norristown Transportation Center was not expected to return until Monday, and SEPTA said full service would not be restored until Tuesday.

SEPTA expected to begin re-running suspended buses at 10 a.m. Sunday, "with a focus on priority routes that feed customers to the Broad Street and Market-Frankford lines." Priority city routes include Routes 14, 18, 21, 33, 42, 52, 56, 58, 59, 60 and 66, SEPTA said. In the suburbs, priority routes include 93, 99, 104, 108, 109, 110, 113, 124 and 125. SEPTA updates are available on the transit authority's website here.

Parantransit service continued on Sunday for dialysis patients only, according to SEPTA, and limited service will be available Monday.
