    Septa is offering an express service for Phillies fans heading to the World Series by the thousands.

    It should be smooth sailing for Phillies fans who hop on Septa’s sports express trains.   

    Close to 40,000 Philadelphia sports fans chose SEPTA to travel to events at the South Philadelphia sports complex over the weekend.

    The Broad Street Line remains the fastest route to the sports complex for tonight’s possible Game 5 clincher at Citizens Bank Park says SEPTA.

    Broad Street Line Sports Express trains will depart Fern Rock Transportation Center every 10 minutes between 6:25 p.m. and 7:35 p.m. tonight. 

    The express trip from City Hall to the ballpark takes only about eight minutes.  Local trains take only 11 minutes to travel to the sports complex from City Hall.

    SEPTA will also provide extra late-night Regional Rail train service following tonight’s World Series game. 

    Several parking lots operated by the city of Philadelphia will be available after 5:30 p.m. for fans who wish to park in Center City and take SEPTA.  The parking lots are all located near City Hall Station on the Broad Street Line including:

     AutoPark - JFK Plaza Garage - 15th & Arch Sts.
