SEPTA is adding extra Regional Rail service for Phillies fans after tonight’s Game Five of the National League Championship Series at Citizens Bank Park.
The Phillies will try to close out the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight and move on to the World Series. Phillies’ lefty Cole Hamels is scheduled to throw out the first pitch of the game at 8:07 pm
Starting 90 minutes after the last out, 11 extra Regional Rail trains will begin running on all lines, with the exception of the R6 Cynwyd Line and the R1 Airport Line, which will run on their regular schedules. All trains will make their normal stops, with the exception of the R2 Wilmington/Newark Line, which will make its final stop in Marcus Hook.
Prior to the game, SEPTA is running extra service on the Broad Street Line and the Market-Frankford Line to help fans get to the game in time to catch all the action. Ten Sports Express trains will supplement regular service on the Broad Street Line, starting at 6:18 pm. Sports Express trains depart at the Fern Rock Transportation Center, and stop at Olney, Erie, Girard, Spring Garden, Race-Vine, City Hall and Walnut-Locust, before reaching the Pattison Avenue Station at the Sports Complex in South Philadelphia. Four extra trains will be dispatched to supplemented regular service on the Market-Frankford Line, which provides a convenient connection to the Broad Street Line at City Hall.
After the game, fans will find Express and Local trains waiting for them at the Pattison Avenue Station to start them on their journey home.
