Take SEPTA to Bike Philly!!

Why drive when you can ride? To support Bike Philly, SEPTA is adding a car just for bikes on the following inbound Regional Rail trains:

Train #3409 departing West Trenton at 5:58am

Train #703 departing Chestnut Hill East at 6:11am

Train #522 departing Malvern (Paoli Line) at 6:30am

Volunteers will be on board to help you board. We suggest you purchase your weekend round-trip ticket or Independence Pass (for all day access to all of SEPTA) ahead of time, but you can also purchase them onboard.

Don’t forget, bicycles are also allowed on the Market Frankford Line, the Broad Street Line, the Norristown High Speed Line and SEPTA buses are equipped with bike racks to hold two bicycles.

* Please note. Due to varying return times for cyclists, return trains will not have the extra bike car and may be subject to the usual two bike per car restrictions. Please respect the instructions of the conductor of your train.

That's really cool, but seems to take up a lot of space to hold a few bikes. I like how NJ Transit RiverLine has the hooks on the RiverLine better.

WOW! SEPTA got the clue from MBTA about the "Bike Coach" car before NJ TRANSIT! Who would have thunk it?!?!

SEPTA is dispatching extra cars. Our Bike Philly commuter escorts will assist in placing the bikes between the seats.
