SEPTA To Offer Extra Service for Sixers & Phillies Games This Friday

SEPTA is gearing up for an exciting Friday night of Philly sports, including the Sixers home playoff game against the Celtics and the Phillies match-up versus the Red Sox.

The Authority is helping fans get to the Sports Complex by offering extra service on the Broad Street Line. On Friday, May 5, six additional trains will supplement regular service to NRG Station.

Three express trains will leave Fern Rock Transportation Center at 6:08, 6:18, and 6:28 p.m. These express trains will stop at Olney, Erie, Girard, Spring Garden, Race-Vine, City Hall, Walnut-Locust, and NRG Stations.

Three local trains will leave Fern Rock Transportation Center at 6:10, 6:20, and 6:30 p.m. These local trains will make all stops to NRG Station.

SEPTA personnel closely monitor all events to ensure trains are ready for fans at NRG Station. Even if games run late, subway service will be available. Customers are urged to go directly to NRG Station once the event is over.

To speed up their trips, SEPTA riders are encouraged to load funds on a SEPTA Key Card before game day, or use SEPTA Key Tix to purchase tickets for one or more people using a smartphone.
