Eagles fans attending the Birds’ home opener against the 49ers can look forward to an extra perk: free rides home after the game.
SEPTA will shuttle people from NRG Station on the Broad Street Line for free between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Sunday, the agency announced in a press release. “The Free Rides Program is aimed at offering a safe and convenient post-game travel option for fans,” SEPTA said.
Given that drinks tend to flow freely at football games, Birds games being no exception, a free, convenient, safe ride home from Lincoln Financial Field will be welcomed news to fans, many of whom began tailgating before sunrise for the 1 p.m. game.
SEPTA stressed that fare will still be charged pre-game and asked that people load up their SEPTA Key with money to speed up travel to the game.
