Amtrak says modified service will continue on Thursday and as clean-up from Tuesday night's fatal derailment in Philadelphia continues.

Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter (D) does not expect Northeast Corridor service to be restored this week through the city after seeing the mangled track and wires caused by the derailment.

New Jersey Transit will cross-honor Amtrak tickets between New York and Trenton again on Thursday according to a statement from Amtrak. NJ Transit's RiverLINE is also cross honoring Amtrak tickets.

NJ Transit is also cross honoring tickets and passes on bus service south of I-195.

In addition, Amtrak will provide modified service between Washington and Philadelphia, Harrisburg and Philadelphia, and New York and Boston.

Service on NJ Transit's Atlantic City line remains suspended between Philadelphia, 30th Street and Pennsauken. Bus service will be provided between Cherry Hill and 30th Street in Philadelphia. PATCO tweets they are cross honoring  Atlantic City line tickets.

SEPTA service remains suspended throughout Wednesday on the Trenton Regional rail line. SEPTA says there's a possibility that the service could be suspended for the rest of the week. Additional train cars will be added to SEPTA's West Trenton Line to accommodate Trenton Line passengers seeking alternate service.

Cars overflowed the parking lot at the West Trenton station Wednesday morning, lining the street and on nearby patches of grass.

NJ Transit is planning to begin using a shuttle to take commuters from West Trenton to Trenton because the SEPTA line does not stop at the city's main transit center. The shuttle would supplement the service of bus 608 during off-peak hours from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Buck said.

Trenton Line passengers can also use SEPTA's Market/Frankford Line to commute in and out of Philadelphia.

Greyhound has added additional service between New York and Philadelphia as well as Philadelphia and Washington.The bus line is also allowing Amtrak riders to trade in their ticket for a bus ticket at no extra charge until Amtrak resumes Northeast Corridor rail service.

7 people were killed in the derailment in North Philadelphia on Tuesday night that left at least seven cars including the engine "in disarray." Mayor Michael Nutter says there were train cars that were "completely overturned, on their side, ripped apart."
