Any ride starting from NRG Station along the Broad Street Line after the Eagles-Colts game tomorrow will be free, SEPTA announced Friday. All rides before the game will still have regular fares.
The Broad Street Line is the SEPTA Route known best for its ability to take fans to and from the Lincoln Financial Field and other Philadelphia sports arenas. The free trains back from the 1 p.m. game will begin at 3 p.m. and end at 7 p.m. so people will not feel rushed to get home, regardless of the outcome.
The free rides are sponsored by NJM Insurance Group, one of the the Mid-Atlantic Region’s leading auto insurers and teen driver safety advocate. NJM Senior Vice President Tracy McManimon said it best about keeping fans safe as they enjoy supporting their favorite team.
“We know how passionate Philadelphians are about their World Champion Eagles, and we’re thrilled to partner with SEPTA on this public service to help keep fans safe,” McManimon said. “We look forward to more opportunities to bring our century-long commitment to safety to the hard-working people of this great city.”
SEPTA will also be adding 10 extra Sports Express Trains leaving Fern Rock Station every 10 minutes from 10:10 a.m. until 12:20 p.m. to accommodate the large volume of football fans.
