Water Main Breaks Causes Bus Provider to Move Stop Near Philadelphia's 30th Street Station

Megabus says riders will need to get their bus about a block up JFK Boulevard

Grabbing a bus home for Thanksgiving? A water main break could impact where you get your ride.

A 12-inch water main broke on JFK Boulevard between 30th and Market streets — the area behind 30th Street Station where Megabus and BoltBus pick-up and drop-off passengers — early Tuesday, Philadelphia Water Department spokesman John DiGiulio said.

Crews blocked off part of the road as they shut down water to two nearby Drexel University buildings, the water department said. Drexel said they didn't experience any water outages at any of their buildings, however.

The break caused Megabus, which has more than one dozen rides scheduled for Tuesday, to move its pickup/drop-off location about a block west of 30th Street, Megabus said.

No word yet from BoltBus if the break would impact its more than one dozen rides Tuesday.

No word yet on if things will return to normal in time for Wednesday travel.
