Rail on over to the Eagles Super Bowl parade

SEPTA and the city of Philadelphia say regional rail is your best bet to get to the Eagles Super Bowl Parade Thursday.

Stops are being consolidated, however, and trains will operate inbound only in the morning and outbound only after the parade. 

On parade day, passengers must have a weekly or monthly trail pass, an independence pass or a pre-bought senior/reduced fair ticket to travel by train. 

You can pick those up at SEPTA sales locations the morning of, but SEPTA recommends doing it beforehand. The closest sales locations to the Lehigh Valley are Doylestown and Lansdale. Long lines are already being reported. 

If you can use local trains, free rides will be offered on the Market Frankford and Broad Street Lines, which SEPTA says are the best options to get to the parade route.

If you text ReadyEagles to 888-777 the city will send free text alerts throughout the day with information on transit, weather and public safety.

No worries if you don't want to or can't go, 69 News has you covered with multiple crews stationed throughout the parade route.
