Late Night Regional Rail!

SEPTA announced today that it will be implementing a wide range bus and rail service expansions, a welcome change from years of service cuts (Inquirer coverage).  The improvements, including additional buses and regional rail trains to reduce crowding, will all take effect by November.  I am most excited about post-midnight trains being added to the R5 Paoli/Thorndale, R6 Norristown, and R7 Trenton lines.  It will be nice to be able to return to Philadelphia from New York via NJ Transit and SEPTA a little later.  Rather than getting stranded in Trenton, I can take an R7 train 30th Street, an R5 train to Haverford, and catch the Tri-Co Shuttle to Swarthmore.  Ideally, late night regional rail will be a success and R3 service to Media/Elwyn after midnight will be available eventually.
