SEPTA To Enhance Service For ‘Made In America’ Concert
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - With the Made in America concert right around the corner, SEPTA has announced it will enhance a number of services over the Labor Day weekend in order to support the large crowds.
The “Made in America” concert takes place on Saturday, September 1, and Sunday, September 2 with performances scheduled to begin at 2:00 P.M. and conclude at 11:00 P.M. on both days.
Service on the Broad Street Line and the Market-Frankford Line will run every five minutes before, during and after the performances. Trips will operate with similar frequency on City Trolley Routes 10, 11, 13, 34 and 36, all of which provide travel to-and-from Center City.
SEPTA will be providing fans with extra trips on both the Broad Street and Market-Frankford lines, as well as on some connecting transit services, including the Norristown High Speed Line and city trolley routes.
Since Regional Rail trains will operate on regular weekend schedules, with hourly service on most lines, concert-goers who may normally use Regional Rail are encouraged to take advantage of the extra transit service.
Trains on the Norristown High Speed Line will run every 20 minutes during peak travel times, including after the shows. The line connects with the Market-Frankford Line at 69th Street Transportation Center.
