SEPTA is reminding music fans attending this weekend’s Made In America concert that public transit is the easiest way to get to and from the venue on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
Broad Street and Market-Frankford Subway Lines
The best resources for travel to-and-from the concert are SEPTA’s subways?the Broad Street Line (BSL) and the Market-Frankford Line (MFL). These lines are easily accessible for riders throughout the region, with stops located just a short walking distance from the concert site. Service on the BSL and MFL Lines will operate on regular Saturday/Sunday schedules, with extra trains added for the festival. Subway service will run all night on Friday into Saturday, and Saturday into Sunday.
Subway Surface Trolley Service
SEPTA’s Center City trolley tunnel, which normally closes on Sunday evenings, will remain open to accommodate passengers on the Route 10, 11, 13, 34 and 36 trolleys.
Trains will run on regular weekend schedules, with most lines operating hourly. SEPTA will add or extend several trains on Saturday and Sunday to support the break of the festival. Late night service will be available on most Regional Rail Lines following the Festival, with trains departing from Jefferson, Suburban, and 30th Street Stations on Saturday, Sept. 2 and Sunday, Sept. 3.
