Unibet to Sponsor Free Rides Home on SEPTA’s Broad Street Line [B] Sunday’s Eagles-Cardinals Game

Free Rides Start at Halftime, Continue for Two Hours After Game; Special NYE Schedules In Effect

PHILADELPHIA (December 28, 2023) – Throughout the regular season, Unibet, an official casino and sportsbook partner of the Philadelphia Eagles, will help Eagles fans get home safely after each Eagles home game by sponsoring free rides home from NRG Station on the Broad Street Line [B].

The free rides begin at halftime and run for two hours post-game or until the last scheduled train departs. Kickoff against the Arizona Cardinals at the Linc is at 1 pm on New Year’s Eve, December 31. Regular fares apply for all Broad Street Line [B] travel to the game.

“After a successful start to our partnership with SEPTA during the Eagles playoff run last year, Unibet is excited to extend our relationship into this football season. As a proud casino and sportsbook partner of the Philadelphia Eagles, Unibet strives to enhance the fan experience while also reminding our customers to play responsibly. Being able to provide Eagles fans with safe and free transportation home from the game is a fantastic opportunity for Unibet to demonstrate that commitment as well as our appreciation for Philadelphia residents and Eagles fans,” said Manuel Stan, SVP of North America, Kindred Group. 

“SEPTA is thrilled to partner with Unibet again to provide free rides home from Eagles’ games,” said SEPTA CEO and General Manager Leslie S. Richards. “This is such an exciting time for our city and region, and SEPTA is ready with extra game-day service for fans. We will also have additional personnel on the system to assist riders and to help ensure that their travel is safe, secure, and convenient.”
