UPDATE 2 PM: SEPTA has sold out of its 50,000 day passes for Regional Rail before the Eagles Super Bowl Parade.

6ABC notes that if you were able to snag a ticket, they still can’t confirm that you’ll have a ride if the system is “at capacity.”  At least you’d still be able to use the pass for up to 180 days from the buy date.

In the full news report from 6ABC, they say “Early Birds will be at an advantage.”


If you are looking for a way to get to and from The Eagles Celebration Parade, SEPTA has you covered.

According to 6ABC, “The Market-Frankford and Broad Street Lines are the best options for travel to-and-from the parade. Thanks to support from Independence Blue Cross, rides on both lines are free on Thursday. (Please note that regular fares apply for all other SEPTA services.)”

The Market-Frankford Line will get people access to Center City using 69th Street Transportation Center, and there will be multiple connections via Norristown High Speed Line, 101 and 102 Trolley Lines, as well as bus routes.

The trains will be running back and forth every 5 to 7 minutes, according to 6ABC, starting at 5AM.
