AMITY TWP., Pa. - As Philadelphia prepares for a parade that's been 58 years in the making, a pair of Berks County-based bus companies are making it easy for Eagles fans to get there.

Klein Transportation announced Monday that it will run buses to the Super Bowl championship parade on Thursday from locations in Wyomissing, Douglassville, and King of Prussia.

"Everyone in the area is super excited about this. It's not something that happens all the time, of course," said Christa McCusker, sales supervisor for Klein Transportation. "Everyone wants to be in Philadelphia and be a part of the action."

Not long after the announcement was made, however, Klein said it had already filled four buses and was taking names on its website of anyone interested in filling a possible fifth bus.

"If the need increases, then we can keep adding buses as we need to," McCusker said.

The cost is $30 per person for the roundtrip.

Kutztown-based Bieber Transportation Group also announced that it will add two extra buses to its Runs #303 and #306 as a way of accommodating fans. Bieber said it will have to cancel its Runs #304 and #305 because of the routing and timing of the parade.

Philadelphia officials announced Monday that the parade is tentatively scheduled to start at 11 a.m. Thursday at Broad Street and Pattison Avenue in south Philadelphia. It will then make its way up Broad Street and to the Art Museum of Philadelphia.

The forecast for Philadelphia on Thursday is mostly sunny skies with a high temperature of 34 degrees.

The Eagles won their first Super Bowl on Sunday by defeating the New England Patriots 41-33. Quarterback Nick Foles was named the game's MVP.
