|Septa Train Schedules in REAL TIME|
If you ride the Media/Elwyn line into the city, you’ll know two things. 1) Parking after 7:30am at the Media station can be non-existent 2) There isn’t any way to track Septa train schedules in real time. For the former, if you ride a scooter/bike to the station, there is plenty of parking at any time of the day. Now, riding in the cold or sometimes rain is not ideal, especially in a suit, but I’ve never not had parking. As for the second item, well, I’m happy to report that Septa got with the times and recently released a website that is designed for smartphones. In fact, it is excellent at providing train schedules and realtime updates on late arrivals/departures. There are some minor improvements needed, but I like it a lot and is definetly worth a try.

And don’t forget, Septa also provides a handy twitter feed for the Media/Elwyn Line, as well as the Media 101 Trolley Line. I’ve found it useful on many occasions, especially during the snow season.
