Ditch the car and hop on SEPTA's Sports Express. It's cheap and easy.

SEPTA is offering extra service to get fans to Citizens Bank Park for all the playoff action.

To accommodate fans making the midday rush to the ballpark, SEPTA will run Sports Express service on the Broad Street Line to the Sports Complex in South Philadelphia.

In addition to regularly scheduled service, two extra Sports Express trains will run prior to the game, departing Fern Rock Transportation Center at 1:28 p.m. and 1:41 p.m.  These trains 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.

An average Sports Express trip from City Hall to Pattison Avenue takes just 8 minutes and it's dirt cheap -- buy a two-pack of tokens and get to and from the game on the Broad Street Line for just $2.90. One-way cash fare is $2.

To get fans home, SEPTA added service on the Broad Street Line after the game. Riders will find waiting trains at Pattison Avenue once the last out is recorded.

SEPTA will run the same extra Broad Street Line service for Thursday’s Phillies-Rockies game, which is also scheduled to start at 2:37 p.m.
