400 SEPTA workers go on strike

Over 400 SEPTA workers have gone on strike, shutting down 13 regional train lines carrying commuters around the Philadelphia region.

The strike began early Saturday after negotiations between SEPTA and two unions failed to reach a new contract.

The lines affected carry about 60,000 commuters daily to and from Philadelphia and Philadelphia International Airport.

However, subways, trolleys and buses operated by SEPTA will continue to run.
