    If you travel along the Warminster Line, be prepared to add some travel time to your commute.

    SEPTA is adding new signal and power systems along the train line in December and will run shuttle buses in place of regular train service on a portion of the line.

    Shuttle buses will leave Warminster Station 22 minutes before scheduld times and arrive there 20 minutes later than scheduled on the weekends of Dec. 5th and 6th, 12th and 13th, and 19th and 20th.

    The new Automatic Train Control (ATC) System will improve the safety and effectiveness of signal communication with trains, and is a part of ongoing SEPTA Regional Rail improvements, according to SEPTA.

    Also, on Friday, Dec. 11, in preparation for the weekend work on Dec. 12 and 13, inbound and outbound local and express shuttle buseswill provide service in lieu of train service between Jenkintown and Warminster stations. Inbound substitute bus service from Warminster will start at 4:37 p.m. and outbound substitute bus service will start with the 7:30p.m. departure from Jenkintown.

    Outbound passengers will transfer to shuttle buses at Jenkintown for service to stations above Glenside. Glenside passengers can remain on the train for direct service to their station.
