5:04 am
buses, more trains on the market frankfurt line, the broad street line at least during the rush hour commute so that can you get to where you need go. but you also need to be prepared. this is what they're telling us, that the regional rail trains sh the ones they have because they're going to be fewer of them that you may experience a situation where the train goes right by because it is so full, especially as it's coming into center city for the morning commute. do you have to plan for an alternate. that is the big message from septa. make alternate plans. you know the saying, expect the worst but for the best. we'll continue to get updates as you get ready to head out to work or wherever you need go this morning. we're live in center city. >> all right. matt, thank you for. that we continue our live team now in montgomery county.

5:06 am
the rush. but we'll see what happens. >> and that passenger we spoke to said that he's expecting to encounter some delays, some congestion on his commute home this evening. we're going to be checking in throughout the morning to let you know how things are going out here in glenside. >> pamela, thank you f you're having trouble this morning with your commute, we want to hear from you. take a picture of what is happening at the station around you. and tweet us about your experience. twitter handle is @nbcphiladelphia. you can get the latest updates every step the way. we'll have up to the minute updates. make sure you have the nbc 10 app for that. >> we had to show you the high
