Does SEPTA run a limited schedule for President's Day? Mainly, will the Cynwood Line be running?

I don't have a printed schedule, but the others show no holidays from New Year's Day to Memorial Day, which should mean that the Cynwyd service, such as it is, will run a normal weekday schedule. (I believe there's a good chance of getting a Silverliner V on those trips.)

The online schedule for Cynwyd* http://septa.org/schedules/rail/w/CYN_1.html says "except major holidays", which is essentially useless by itself. I'm tempted to agree with ExCon90 ... but this is SEPTA, after all, so my suggestion would be to try calling their customer line plus check the bus schedules for their, uh, "alternate service"**

* rather than "Cynwood". Lotsa Welsh names around here :). Nothing like telling someone you live in Tredyffrin or Uwchlan!
** usually better than "alternate facts", but sometimes there's more than a little similarity...

The online timetable for Cynwyd includes a list of major holidays. As ExCon90's post pointed out above, no holiday is listed between New Years Day and Memorial Day.

Thanks much, Bob. I'm working with a handheld device, which makes for occasional misses when looking at fixed-format documents.
