SEPTA is increasing weekend service on the Regional Rail this March.

What's happening: The stations at West Trenton, Warminster, Glenside and Media/Elwyn are among the Regional Rail lines that will see additional service.

Between the lines: As of this week, Regional Rail is operating at 75% of pre-pandemic levels, not including the upcoming serving additions, according to the transit agency.

Yes, but: From October through December, ridership on Regional Rail was up to 40% from pre-pandemic levels. That dipped to 30% of pre-pandemic levels this January during the Omicron wave.

Go deeper: Regional Rail weekend schedule information can be found on SEPTA's website.
