SEPTA to offer free rides on Thursday, Feb. 8 due to the Eagles parade

Posted on 06 February 2018

SEPTA will be offering free rides on the Broad Street and Market-Frankford Lines before and during the Super Bowl victory parade on Thursday, Feb. 8. SEPTA will also make significant service adjustments, including limited stops on Regional Rail for service to-and-from Center City.

The parade will begin at 11 a.m. at Broad Street and Pattison Avenue, continue north on Broad to City Hall, and then onto the Benjamin Franklin Parkway toward the Philadelphia Museum of Art. To better control crowds with available personnel and to allow for more efficient service, SEPTA will consolidate stops on rail lines. Regional Rail will operate inbound-only in the morning and outbound-only after the parade. 

Free Rides on Market-Frankford & Broad Street Lines

Trains on the Market-Frankford and Broad Street lines will run every 5-7 minutes starting at 5 a.m. on Thursday. SEPTA will use as many rail cars as possible to provide added capacity for riders.

Bus, Trolley Service

A number of bus routes that operate on and around the parade route in South Philadelphia and Center City will be detoured. City Trolley Routes 10, 11, 13, 34 and 36 will not stop at 15th Street, and additional adjustments are possible.

Riders are urged to check the special Eagles Parade section of SEPTA’s website for more details at  http://www.septa.org/eagles.

Philadelphia public schools will be closed on Thursday, so that families can attend the parade.
