PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Numerous SEPTA routes will be disrupted and detoured due to this weekend’s Broad Street Run.
SEPTA says bus detours are currently scheduled on the following routes: 3, 4, 7, 9, 12, 16, 17, 21, 42, 23, 27, 29, 31, 32, 33, 37, 38, 39, 40, 43, 44, 48, 53, 54, 56, 60, 61, 64, 68, 75, 79, 124, 125, G, J, H, XH and R. The Route 15 Trolley shuttle bus will also be detoured.
SEPTA will also be running extra subway service on the Broad Street Line before the race. Northbound trips will run every 10 minutes from AT&T Station, located near the finish line, from 5:35 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. These trains will stop only at Walnut/Locust and City Hall stations on the way to Olney Transportation Center, a short distance from the race.
Additionally, SEPTA is offering the special northbound subway service free to registered runners if they display their official race bib with their competitor number.
Extra Broad Street Line service will also be added for Sunday’s Phillies game at Citizens Bank Park. Four Express trips will run every 10 minutes during the hour leading up to the first pitch at 2:35 p.m.
Detours are expected to begin at 8 a.m. Sunday, and riders should allow additional time in case of delays.
