Equipment problems delayed commuters this morning on SEPTA's Market-Frankford and Broad Street lines.
A switch problem was reported at the 69th Street Station on the Market-Frankford line at about 7:45 a.m., SEPTA spokeswoman Heather Redfern said.
Riders experienced delays of at least 10 minutes for nearly five hours. At about 12:45, the transit agency said the switch problems had been resolved and trains were running on schedule.
SEPTA also canceled express service on the line for the morning.
Broad Street line riders also briefly experienced delays due to a disabled train at the Fairmount Station. That train has been moved and service on that line is back to normal, Redfern said.
