SEPTA to Run Special Service for Pope Visit

Philadelphia commuter trains will run special service to two of the city's three main stations during Pope Francis' September visit, shuttling passengers from a limited number of suburban outposts.

SEPTA said Monday that trains on six lines will stop at Jefferson Station and four will stop at 30th Street Station.

The Media/Elwyn line and some Airport Line trains will terminate at University City.

Suburban Station won't operate during the Sept. 26-27 visit. It's located near where more than 1 million people are expected for a Papal Mass.

Passengers must have a $10 Papal Visit pass, available online July 20. They must specify their home station and select a window of time they're traveling when purchasing the one-day passes.

SEPTA's limiting how many passes are available to keep crowds consistent with capacity.
