5:01 pm
cancel several trains for the evening rush hour. but folks we talked with say so far their rides are available. they're just not there yet. so they're dealing with delays. not cancellations. but the people we talked to are taking it all in stride. >> septa, well, might as well shut the whole thing down going through all this. it makes no sense. >> it is what it is. you have to just deal with it. hope septa does their part and make sure all the trains are running the best as possible. we all get on which i doubt will happen. i can see by the lines, but we'll see. today is the first day. deal with it. >> reporter: delays have been running upwards of 45 minutes for trains especially trains trying to leave center city. septa says that you should look at finding other ways to get around. lyft and uber also been cashing in on all of this as well. one more note. late word septa says they'll try to get a court injunction so that they can get septa workers back to their work stations and
5:02 pm
try to cut down on some of these delays and get rid of some of the cancellations. back to you lucy and iain. >> all right. thanks very much, dave. lots of people rely on septa left scrambling for way to work. >> many of them chose to drive their own cars or take their chances with regional rail. bob kell toll get you through the commute home. this could be a tough one tonight. >> not just tonight, i think this is going to set things up for the next couple of days. first of all, let me rerate what dave just mentioned got a call about an hour and half ago from septa saying the transit workers that are on strike are blocking the epp trance to the employee lots where the engineers and the conductors drive their personal cars to report for work. that's going to cause 30 plus trains to be canceled leaving center city this evening. if you know someone whose getting ready to come home on a regional rail, this is going to be huge for downtown. commuters already put up with the headaches getting in to center city this morning. now with 30 plus trains
5:03 pm
canceled, a hot mess downtown. i know septa trying to get a court injunction. to be honest with you at 5:00 o'clock a court injunction by the time they get those engineers and conductors to the trains, it could be too late. here's what we're dealing with tonight. definitely the crowded platfor platforms. septa says have your tickets in advance. the passes and tickets will be checked before you board the train. no cash on the trains. sort of say the same scenario we had at the beginning of the problem when those rail cars were pulled off of the tracks. passengers will be held up top on the concourses until the train pulls in and then the passengers will go down the steps. right now, at least 60 minute delays on all of the regional rail lines. let's not running of course the city buses the trollies no market frankford, no broad street subway. here's a live look at i-95. we've had gridlock all day long. we've also had a motorcade in the middle of all of this. and of course in center city it's just gridlock we'll be here
5:04 pm
all afternoon keeping you up to date with the septa situation. not only here on tv but also online at fox29.com. iain and lucy, back over to you. >> my goodness. i was driving home last night saw a couple of septa workers. hey, what about the regional suburban and fran tear bus lines? they said those are still going for a couple of weeks. there's a lot of people confused out there. >> absolutely. still no deal and let's join shawnette wilson covering this now. she's in tioga nicetown where picketers are gathering right now. shawnette. >> reporter: iain, certainly still no deal. but a new move by picketers we just heard bob kelly mention officials telling us that picketers started this morning blocking access to the property where some of these regional rail trains are being kept preventing workers from reporting to work. behind me they tell me it happened here at the midvale bus facility and in nicetown tioga. picketers just left about 30 minutes ago. the move forced septa to canceled significant number of
5:05 pm
trains during the evening rush hour. regional rails of course what many commuters were forced to turn to this morning for transportation as we just said now that's also being restricted because of strikers. septa is now recommending that passengers seek yet another mode of transportation. we all learned at midnight through a union representing nearly 5,000 workers that the two sides have not reached a contract agreement leading to the strike and shut down of buses, trollies and subways. rail lines serving the suburbs continue to operate but we want to remind you, again, as of this evening, picketers were blocking access so many of those trains are now not running either. meanwhile, no word on an agreement being reached at last report union president willie brown said that both sides remained far apart on pension, health care issues, schedule link break times and other safety issues. so again, right now, we want to remind you no deal has been reached. so for now you'll want to go to fox29.com. you'll find a full list of all the cancellations that septa just released a little while ago

5:30 pm
to please check your children's candy. terrible to even have to do that. last year we had similar cases. well, it's been a rough day in you're a commuter in philly. bosses of buses, trollies and subways come to a stop after the septa union members who drive them announced they are on strike. the union which represents the transit operators could not come to an agreement with septa's m regional rail lines are still oping but they're now delayed after pickets blocked access to some facilities and the strike means a lot of people decided to hop into their own car and make their trek to work. >> of course that means they have to park somewhere, right? on the phone with us is rick dixon. he is the deputy executive director of the philadelphia parking authority. thank you so much for joining us tonight. >> if people have to park, what is your suggestion? where is the best spotted to that. >> well, we're trying to find a balance between the different types of parking demands for people coming into the city. of course those people that need to come to work and park all day need long term parking. we need to be able to accommodate people who want to shop and patronage our
5:31 pm
businesses so we have stabbed a flatten dollars rate for 10 hours parking in six of our center city garages. three of them filled up today. but there's still three that have capacity today in alled l old city at the gallery and family courthouse. at the same time we're also trying to find the balance for on street parking demand. so we understand that it -- people may need to come out and put more money in the meter to stay for longer periods every time. so we're not enforcing meter expired until after the meter has been expired for an hour. >> that's nice. >> once a meter expires we're giving people an extra hour to get back there to put more money in the meter so try to com date that extra demand. >> that's what i was going to ask you. ease up on the enforcement because of all the problems out. you get an extra hour to feed the meter. want to make sure we heard you right. >> that's correct. after the meter expires you get an extra hour before tickets are written. we're also allowing people to load and unload passengers in
5:32 pm
bus sews zones so they can pull over to let people if they have cars, they not leave their vehicle without a driver in it in those places but that's an option for people that are helping to carpool. we are also limiting enforcement in residential areas to later in the afternoon. so won't begin until 3:30 in the afternoon when people need to come home to try to find a place to park near their homes. so these are all balances we're trying to find for the different competing demands for parking as long as this unusual situation goes on. >> hopefully it doesn't go on for long. rick dixon thank you very much and thank you for the easing up on the enforcement. >> good decision. >> definitely executive director of the philadelphia parking authority. >> thank you. >> thank you rick. >> let's get back to your fox 29 weather authority. live look at trenton new jersey little chilly but some relief in z meteorologist kathy orr has your forecast in just 15 seconds.
