SEPTA has its game-plan ready, as the Eagles try to tackle a major division rival this weekend at Lincoln Financial Field.
The Birds take on the Washington Redskins on Sunday, November 29, 2009 at 1 p.m., a contest that is likely to have major playoff implications as the battle for the NFC East title enters the home stretch of the season.
SEPTA is ready to get fans to and from the game with Sports Express service on the Broad Street Line.
Sports Express trains will run every 10 minutes on the Broad Street Line before the game, with service starting at 10:10 a.m. A total of 10 Sports Express trains will be deployed to supplement regularly scheduled service.
Sports Express trains depart Fern Rock Transportation Center, then stop at Olney, Erie, Girard, Spring Garden, Race-Vine, City Hall and Walnut-Locust, before reaching the Pattison Avenue Station at the Sports Complex. An average Sports Express trip from City Hall to Pattison Avenue is just 8 minutes. Fans can expect Local and Express trains to be waiting for them at Pattison Avenue after the game for the journey home.
There will also be additional game-day service on the Market-Frankford Line, which provides a quick and easy connection to the Broad Street Line at City Hall. A number of bus and trolley routes also offer easy access to the subway, as does the PATCO High Speedline. Riders can also take advantage of free Sunday parking at most Regional Rail stations, and then take trains into Market East or Suburban stations to connect to the Broad Street Line.
