SEPTA was forced to suspend service Monday along one of its Regional Rail lines, causing headaches for riders during the early morning commute.

The transit agency announced at 6:48 a.m. that power problems forced the Doylestown line out of service until further notice.

The issues had already caused numerous delays along the line that connects Bucks County with Center City Philadelphia.

Still no resolution in SEPTA contract negotiations; deadline looming

SEPTA officials said that workers are currently attempting to resolve the problem.

At 9:38 a.m., SEPTA announced that service has been restored on a limited basis. Trains will operate from Center City to Link Belt.

Service remains suspended between Link Belt and Doylestown Stations.
