SEPTA's Detours for the Blue Cross Broad Street Run

The Blue Cross Broad Street Run is only a few days away! With over 30,000 participants crowding to the city and blocking roadways, SEPTA is alerting residents and visitors of the detours happening around the race.


SEPTA is running extra service on the Broad Street Line subway.

Special northbound trips will run every 10 minutes from AT&T Station from 4:45 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.  These trains will stop only at Walnut-Locust and City Hall stations en route to Olney Transportation Center.

SEPTA is offering this trip FREE to registered runners until 9 a.m.  Participants must show their official race bib with competitor number to ride free.


Bus Routes on, across, and around Broad Street in North Philadelphia, Center City, and South Philadelphia will be detoured due to road closures.

Detours begin at 7:30 a.m. and will resume regular service as soon as the race is finished. The following bus routes are scheduled for detour:

Route 3, 4, 7, 9, 12, 15, 16, 17, 21, 23, 27, 29, 31, 32, 33, 37, 38, 39, 40, 42, 43, 44, 45, 48, 53, 54, 56, 60, 61, 64, 68, 75, 79, 124, 125, G, J, H, XH, and R.

SEPTA is urging customers using buses that operate near the race course to plan ahead for these adjustments and should allow for extra time to complete trips.
