Unibet to Sponsor Free Rides Home on SEPTA’s Broad Street Line After Every Eagles Game

Free rides begin at halftime and run for two hours post-game, or until last scheduled train departs; contactless credit card payment options now available

PHILADELPHIA (September 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. NRG Station provides service to venues at the Sports Complex in South Philadelphia, including Lincoln Financial Field.

The free rides begin at halftime and run for two hours post-game or until the last scheduled train departs. Kickoff against the Washington Commanders at the Linc is at 1 p.m. on October 1. Regular fares apply for all Broad Street Line 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 the upcoming 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. “Going to the Superbowl last year was so exciting and we know Eagles fans are even more enthusiastic about this season. This is such an exciting time for our city and region, and SEPTA will be ready for each game with extra 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.”

Extra Service 

For the Broad Street Line 10 Express trains will depart Fern Rock Transportation Center every ten minutes beginning at 10:10 a.m. on game day. These trains will stop at Olney; Erie; Girard; Spring Garden; Race-Vine; City Hall; Walnut-Locust; and the last stop will be NRG Station.

Game-Day Connections  

Eagles fans can connect with the Broad Street Line from dozens of bus routes, and there is a free transfer from the Market-Frankford Line and City Trolley routes at 15th Street/City Hall. 

The Broad Street Line is also just a short walk from Regional Rail Stations in Center City and is also easily accessible from the PATCO High Speed Line for fans from South Jersey.

New Fare Payment Options

Starting September 29 credit/debit card, in physical form or through apps like Apple Pay, Google Pay, and Samsung Pay, will be accepted on city and suburban buses, trolleys, Market-Frankford Line, Broad Street Line, and the Norristown High Speed Line, at any turnstile with a simple tap on the fare validator, or as they board a bus or trolley.
