PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Transportation officials in the Philadelphia region are warning transit passengers of possible disruptions and service changes with a storm expected to bring heavy snow to the region.

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority is urging people to plan ahead and avoid unnecessary travel if possible late Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday.

SEPTA General Manager Jeff Knueppel says officials will be watching for downed trees and power lines, and warns that bus service could be impacted not only by snow but by downed trees.

He says the Market-Frankford and Broad Street subway lines will be the best modes of transit throughout Philadelphia.

Officials warn that snow could impact rail, bus and trolley routes and perhaps detours or even cancellations. Regional rail lines will operate on a severe storm service plan.
