SEPTA Gets Back on Track Just in Time for Election Day

The city's buses, subways and trolleys are running with some delays Tuesday following a week-long transit strike

Philadelphia voters can use mass transit to get to the polls.

The city's buses, subways and trolleys are running with some delays Tuesday following a week-long transit strike that ended when the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority and the union representing about 4,700 transit workers announced a tentative agreement early Monday.

SEPTA is the sixth-largest mass transit system in the nation. [[400380331, C]]

SEPTA is offering a credit vouchers for unused weekly or monthly TransPasses because of the strike. The credit voucher can be used to purchase another SEPTA fare product.

Customers may bring their unused TransPasses to SEPTA sales offices or retail outlets.

The strike caused traffic gridlock around the city during morning and evening rush hours. There was also crowded and delayed regional train service.
