Your ride on SEPTA could be slower than normal Tuesday morning due to a lack of bus drivers.

The Philadelphia-area transit agency tweeted out more than 20 bus routes that were "operating with delays due to an operator shortage."

The impacted routes are 14, 20, 24, 25, 28, 29, 33, 4, 47, 49, 5, 56, 57, 58, 60, 64, 66, 67, 7, 70, 9, G and K, according to SEPTA.

"We had some sick outs and wanted to let riders know delays are possible," SEPTA spokesperson Elvira Méndez told NBC10.

It is unclear when bus service on those routes will return to normal, so give yourself some extra time.
