Route 17: Now with artics, soon to serve Penn’s Landing Viaduct

Starting Tuesday, May 31st, 60 foot Novabus Artics started serving route 17 to deal with overcrowding on the line. The service still runs at its regular headways.  This is the only Southern line to use articulated buses.

Due to the longer buses, the route 17 will be extended to the Penn’s Landing Viaduct during the day, as there isn’t enough room at the Front & Market Terminal for both the 48 and 17’s articulated buses to layover. In fact, route 5 is now laying over on Front Street.

The new schedule comes out on Sunday, June 19th.
