SEPTA will add extra service on the Broad Street Line this Saturday, December 10, when one of the greatest rivalries in college football returns to Philadelphia. The Black Knights from West Point and Midshipmen from Annapolis will square off at Lincoln Financial Field for the annual Army-Navy Game. Kick-off at the Linc is at 3 p.m.
SEPTA will accommodate passengers traveling to the game with a total of 10 sports express trains on the Broad Street Line to NRG Station. The Sports Express trips will run every 10 minutes departing Fern Rock Station beginning at 9:05 a.m. until 12:20 p.m., stopping at Olney; Erie; Girard; Spring Garden; Race-Vine; City Hall; and Walnut-Locust Stations.
The Broad Street Line provides convenient service to the games and other big events for riders throughout the region. There is a free transfer to the Broad Street Line from the Market-Frankford Line and City Trolley routes at 15th Street/City Hall, and it is just a short walk from Regional Rail stations in Center City. It also connects to bus routes that provide service throughout the city and region, and it is easily accessible from the PATCO High Speed Line for riders from South Jersey.
Football fans will also be treated to a specially decorated bus at 11th and Pattison. The “Midvale Mummers” holiday bus will be on display from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Other festive buses will be at 40th Street Portal and Reading Terminal Market. A full list of times and locations is available here.
To speed their trips to the game, SEPTA riders are encouraged to load funds on a SEPTA Key card before their travel to NRG Station. For more information about the SEPTA Key, visit www.septa.org/key.
