Well, we made it, team. Just in case you’ve been under a rock since Sunday night, the Eagles won Super Bowl LII and the city did, in fact, go up in flames. Some of you flipped cars, others ate horse feces. You may still be nursing a hangover or running through the streets climbing greased poles. Either way, you better start preparing for the parade this Thursday, February 6.
Here’s what you need to know to honor the Birds & have the best possible parade day…
The Market- Frankford and Broadstreet SEPTA lines will be free of charge on Thursday. (AKA: You will not be spending $140 on an Uber into the city.) There will only be inbound services on them in the morning running every 5-7 minutes starting at 5 a.m.
The Regional Rail still will require passes which are on an Independence Pass deal of $10. You will not be able to access Jefferson and 30th Street stations from Suburban, University City, or Temple.
Trolley Routes 10, 11, 13, 34, & 36 will not stop at 15th Street Thursday and all lines will run every 15 minutes.
Market-Frankford Line: Frankford Transportation Center, Arrott Transportation Center, Erie-Torresdale, Allegheny, Huntingdon, Girard, 2nd Street, 8th Street, 13th Street, 30th Street, 40th Street, 46th Street, 52nd Street, 60th Street and 69th Street Transportation Center.
Broad Street Line: Fern Rock Transportation Center, Olney Transportation Center, Wyoming, Erie, North Philadelphia, Cecil B. Moore, Girard, Race-Vine, Walnut-Locust, Ellsworth-Federal, Snyder, and AT&T.
Where To Be
The team will depart the Lincoln Financial Field at 11 a.m. traveling up Broad Street to City Hall, up the Benjamin Franklin Parkway ending at the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Rocky Steps.
As long as you stay along the route, thanks to a promise made to Lane Johnson by Bud Light, 25+ bars on the parade line will be serving free Bud Light to those of age.

What To Wear
Layer up! We’ll have a cloudless sky at 34 degrees but prepare for 12 mph winds. We’re talking a few hoodies under your Nick Foles jerseys. Or, just stock up on free Bud Light- your choice.
