Link: City urges Phils fans to use SEPTA [DN]

Rina Cutler, the city's deputy mayor for transportation, was blunt: "If you are showing up, do not drive."

SEPTA says there will be extra subway trains running on all game days. Express trains will run every 10 minutes along the Broad Street subway line to the stadiums. There will be extra Market-Frankford trains and Regional Rail trains running to get fans to the Broad Street line. And there will be extra late-night subway trains and Regional Rail trains to get people home.

Besides free parking at Regional Rail stations, the Philadelphia Parking Authority will also have parking lots open in Center City, where commuters can park for $5 and then take the subway.

About this blog
Every year, city government spends slightly more than $4 billion. Where does all that money come from? More importantly, where does it go? Are we getting the most bang for our tax buck? “It's Our Money” is a joint project between Philadelphia Daily News and WHYY, funded by the William Penn Foundation, designed to answer these questions.
