  • OF LITTLE HELP... The City of Philadelphia is sponsoring a free SEPTA shuttle bus between the Navy Yard and the Sports Complex starting at 3:00pm until all fans have cleared the complex following the Eagles game. While it's certainly helpful for those who are driving to the Sports Complex on Saturday, it does very little good for those Regional Rail riders on the ex-PRR side who have to get off at 30 St station, then transfer to a shuttle bus or the El, then transfer again to the Broad Street Subway. On the bright side, SEPTA has suspended Saturday's scheduled trackwork on the El between 30 and 40 Sts which would have involved single track operations between the two stations.

    Broad Street line trains - including local and express trains - are scheduled to run every 5 minutes prior to kickoff and shortly after the game. Though, having experienced SEPTA's management of Pattison after a typical regular season game, I would doubt very highly that the schedule can be met...
