As a quick guide here are the SEPTA train connections which will not offer connecting bike service to and from Trenton on weekends after June 30th.
Depart Market East (a few minutes later for Suburban Station and 30th Street)
Depart Trenton (for Philadelphia Stations)
RiverLINE trains that depart Camden in the AM and Trenton in the PM within the above time periods are also affected. Saturday evening trains run until midnight but on Sundays the last bike accessible train to meet the RiverLINE to Camden departs NY Penn Station at 4:54 PM.
But that's not all! Did you know that NJ TRANSIT also has blackout dates? There are no bikes allowed on the following dates in 2012:
7/3, 7/4, 9/2, 9/3, 9/16, 9/25, 11/21, 11/22, 11/23, 12/23, 12/24, 11/31
It's nice (we guess) when NJ Transit makes SEPTA look good. Philadelphia to Atlantic City trains have no bike access time restrictions or blackout dates. Folding bikes continue to allowed on all trains without restrictions.
All this talk of train times makes us feel like we're in this Monty Python sketch.
