Special SEPTA plans for Made In America concert

- Setup is underway and roads are already closing for this weekend's Made In America festival, featuring Rihanna and Coldplay.

SEPTA is reminding music fans attending this weekend’s concert that public transit is the easiest way to get to and from the venue on the Ben Franklin Parkway, Saturday and Sunday.

It says the best resources for travel to-and-from the concert are SEPTA’s subways: the Broad Street Line and the Market-Frankford Line. Those lines are easily accessible for riders throughout the region, with stops located just a short walking distance from the concert site.

Service on the Broad Street and Market-Frankford Lines will operate on regular Saturday/Sunday schedules, with extra trains added for the festival.

SEPTA’s Center City trolley tunnel, which normally closes on Sunday evenings, will remain open to accommodate passengers on the Route 10, 11, 13, 34 and 36 trolleys.

Regional Rail

Trains will run on regular weekend schedules, with most lines operating hourly. SEPTA will add or extend several trains on Saturday and Sunday. All Made In America late night Regional Rail service information is available at www.septa.org.
