PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — As a result of Sunday’s Broad Street Run in Philadelphia, SEPTA is adding additional service, while some bus routes will be detoured.
Starting at 4:10 a.m. on Sunday, SEPTA will begin rolling out 12 additional trains on the Broad Street Line to shuttle runners, spectators and passengers along Broad Street between Fern Rock & AT&T Station.
These additional trains will supplement normally scheduled local train service on the line.
Broad Street Line trains are scheduled to make the eight mile express trip from Olney to City Hall in less than 15 minutes.
Runners who are officially registered can show their race bib to station cashiers on the line for easy access to trains before and after the race. According to SEPTA, participants in the Broad Street Run may ride the Broad Street Line to the starting line for free the day of the race.
Olney Transportation Center is a short walk from the race’s starting line.
AT&T Station provides the best access to the race’s finish line in South Philadelphia.
SEPTA encourages early-morning participants who ride Regional Rail that they can get a “leg-up” on getting to the subway with an easy transfer to the Broad Street Line at Fern Rock Transportation Center.
