SEPTA Regional Rail Walkout Could Begin at Midnight

If it does happen, the strike would impact all 13 lines on SEPTA’s Regional Rail service.

A walkout by SEPTA Regional Rail workers could begin as early as 12:01 a.m. Saturday, the Philadelphia Inquirer has reported. 

The publication said a Regional Rail strike was "increasingly likely."

If it does happen, the strike would impact all 13 lines on SEPTA’s Regional Rail service. It would be the first strike in 31 years, the Inquirer said. Bus and subway service would not be impacted.

Earlier this month, SEPTA Regional Rail engineers authorized a strike. SEPTA's Regional Rail engineers have been working without a contract since 2010; the electricians have not had a contract since 2009.

It's about time Septa was run like a business instead of like a deep pit that our taxpayer money goes into. there needs to be accountability and consequences, not just incessant raises and poor service. Let those who ride Septa pay for the Septa service, not out of my pocket. No free rides for those over 60 yrs old either. You ride, you pay. no one's paying for my car upkeep except me.

Old news- why am I just getting this "news" on Sat AM when on strike already and other Patch elements reported it this AM?
