SEPTA Pope Visit Passes on Sale Wednesday Via Lottery

A one-day online lottery starts at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday for special transit passes required for the weekend of Pope Francis' visit to Philadelphia.

The $10 passes will be needed to ride the Norristown High Speed Line and trolley routes 101 and 102 during the Sept. 26-27 visit.

SEPTA says it will accept requests for the three-day transit passes all day Wednesday.

Winners will be notified via email.

Riders can purchase up to 10 passes. They must select the stations they're riding from and a time window when they'll be traveling.

Customers will be able to enter their requests until 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, so there's no reason to rush to the site immediately.

SEPTA says about 20,000 tickets remained unsold from this week's commuter rail lottery.
