Some SEPTA riders will take bus instead for next 7 weekends
Those who ride the SEPTA route between Lansdale and Doylestown will have to take a bus for several upcoming weekends.
SEPTA officials said shuttle buses will replace train services for the next seven weekends due to overhead wire work.
Doylestown station passengers traveling inbound to Center City will board shuttle buses approximately 15-20 minutes earlier than their regularly scheduled train times.
After leaving Doylestown station, shuttle buses will make all scheduled station stops before connecting passengers with trains at Lansdale Station. Trains will depart from Lansdale station at regularly scheduled train times.
Outbound Lansdale/Doylestown trains will operate as far as Lansdale and arrive at regularly scheduled train times.
Passengers bound for stations located between Lansdale and Doylestown will transfer from trains to waiting shuttle buses at Lansdale Station to complete their outbound trips.
Shuttle bus passengers should add approximately 20 minutes onto their trips.
According to SEPTA officials, the buses will run the following weekends:
September 14-15, 21-22, 28-29, October 5-6, 12-13, 19-20 and 26-27, 2013.
Shuttle bus departures may differ from regularly scheduled train times, so passengers should refer to schedules posted at stations or SEPTA's website for shuttle bus schedules.
