Thanks to a partnership with Dunkin’, SEPTA will offer free rides home from NRG Station on the Broad Street Line all day on Saturday, Dec. 22. The Broad Street Line serves the sports venues and entertainment complex in South Philadelphia. The free-ride-home program is powered by Dunkin’s new espresso line, offering a new choice for authentic, handcrafted espresso drinks.
Along with offering free rides, the Dunkin’ Joy Squad will be distributing $10,000 worth of $5 Dunkin’ gift cards to help keep people energized with Dunkin’s holiday hot and iced coffees. Philadelphia is just one of 12 cities across America that will receive special, joyful visits through Dunkin’s Dozen Days of Joy program.
The free-ride-home program is aimed at offering a safe and convenient post-game travel option for fans. Please note: Regular fares will apply for all Broad Street Line travel to the games and for trips to and from other stations.
