Shuttle buses to Wissahickon Station will leave Elm Street Station 29 minutes before scheduled train times.

Trains from Philadelphia will operate normally to Miquon. Passengers traveling beyond Miquon will transfer to buses at Wissahickon. Shuttle buses will operate directly to Spring Mill and continue to Conshohocken, Norristown Transportation Center, Main Street and Elm Street. Passengers traveling to Norristown from Manayunk, Ivy Ridge and Miquon Stations will board inbound trains and transfer to outbound buses at Wissahickon. Passengers traveling beyond Miquon to Elm Street will incur up to an additional 31 minutes of travel time.
