DVARP Message concerning Market-Frankford Line accident

Yesterday, at approximately 8:10 AM E.S.T., a collision occurred on the Market-Frankford line involving out-of-service trains on the turnaround loop west of 69th Street Terminal. Service to 69th Street has been restored, but the line will be even more short on cars for an indefinite time. If you use the El during peak travel hours, you should expect minor delays and crowded trains today and the rest of the week, if not longer. We recommend you avoid the El and use the Subway-Surface trolleys if you’re traveling between Center City and University City.
