NEW SEPTA CITY TRANSIT SCHEDULES TO BECOME EFFECTIVE SUNDAY

 NEW SEPTA CITY TRANSIT SCHEDULES TO BECOME EFFECTIVE SUNDAY
 PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- New schedules for SEPTA's 84 City Transit Division routes will become effective Sunday (Sept. 13), SEPTA announced today.
 The new timetables -- which should be acquired because of their many time changes -- are being made available this week on transit vehicles, at SEPTA sales offices and at seven special SEPTA On Site sessions.
 SEPTA On Site will be held on Thursday (Sept. 10) during morning and afternoon peak hours (6-9 a.m. and 3:30-6 p.m.) at Olney Transportation Center (Broad Street and Olney Avenue), Frankford Terminal (Frankford Avenue and Bridge Street), 15th Street and John F. Kennedy Boulevard, 54th Street and John F. Kennedy Boulevard, Arrott Terminal (Frankford Avenue and Arrott Street), Broad Street and Snyder Avenue and Broad and Morris streets.
 SEPTA said that the new schedules represent a five percent service adjustment, but that most riders will not notice significant changes.
 A few routes have been improved in small ways, SEPTA reported. These include bus Routes 12, 26, 50, 63, 64 and 76 which have been extended or rerouted to serve new areas.
 In addition, buses will replace trolleys on Routes 15, 23 and 56 temporarily while SEPTA develops plans to purchase new trolleys to replace the 45-year-old cars currently in service on the routes. On Route 23 only, however, trolleys will continue to operate in Chestnut Hill and Mount Airy on Saturdays and Sundays between Germantown Avenue and Bethlehem Pike and Gorgas Lane from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
 Other important changes to City Transit Division services will include:
 -- Weekdays on bus Route 12, 12 morning and 12 afternoon peak hour buses (six eastbound and six westbound) will be rerouted to serve the Philadelphia Electric Company Administration Building on Schuylkill Avenue.
 -- On bus Route 22 on weekdays, a number of additional trips will operate over Edgehill Road, and there will be significant time changes to the schedule during the morning peak hours and in the evening.
 -- On bus Route 26 seven days a week, a number of morning and afternoon trips will begin operating into the One Olney Plaza Shopping Center.
 -- On bus Route 27, weekday Plymouth Meeting Mall trips will not serve Barren Hill. Only those trips designated to originate or terminate in Barren Hill will operate via Crescent Road, Germantown Pike and Church Lane, but all buses will stop at the intersection of Church Lane and Ridge Pike.
 -- On bus Route 46, there will be no service to Darby on Saturdays and Sundays with the buses now operating only to 58th Street and Baltimore Avenue.
 -- Service on bus Route 50 will be extended to the Whitman Plaza Shopping Center in South Philadelphia seven days a week.
 -- On bus Route 54, there will be an entirely new schedule on weekdays with significant changes in operating times.
 -- On bus Route 55, peak hour express service will be discontinued.
 -- Service on bus Route 63 will be extended eastbound to Columbus Boulevard and Washington Avenue and westbound to the Grays Ferry Shopping Center seven days a week. Bus Route 64 also will operate to Columbus Boulevard and Washington Avenue.
 -- Bus Route 76, the Ben FrankLine, will now operate on a new schedule over Market Street from 3rd Street to City Hall. It will also be extended to the Philadelphia Zoo seven days a week.
 -- On the new bus Route 121 weekday schedule, discontinued will be the 7:54 a.m. and 9:19 a.m. westbound trips from 54th Street and City Line Avenue to Gladwynne. The 2:11 p.m. and 5:38 p.m. westbound trips from City Hall will also be discontinued.
