Parade Update: Transit problems will continue for hours

The parade-related transit problems aren’t over, not by a long-shot. We just spoke to Deputy Mayor for Transportation Rina Cutler, who said she’s expecting a long night of clogged highways and delayed trains.

“The system was just never anticipated to try to move millions of people in the course of the day,” Cutler said, predicting tough travel conditions for several more hours.

The festivities at Citizens Bank Park are just wrapping up, which means roughly a 100,000 people will have to be moved out of South Philly.

“I’m waiting for the crowds to start to come out of the stadium, which will cause chaos in slowing down the system again,” Cutler said.
