The Made in America Festival returns to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway this weekend and brings headliners Beyonce and Nine Inch Nails and 34 other bands and performers with it. In preparation for the concert and crowds, SEPTA has planned additional and some altered weekend service.
Buses: Due to street closures around the Parkway, bus routes 7, 32, 33, 38, 43 and 48 will be detoured. Full route details are available on SEPTA's System Status page.
Subways: The Market-Frankford and Broad Street lines will operate on regular Saturday/Sunday schedules, with additional service for the festival. The Owl Bus services will operate as scheduled too.
Trolleys: Trolleys will operate Sunday evening, when they are usually closed for routine maintenance and station cleaning (typically from 10 p.m. Sunday night until 5 a.m. Monday morning). The Route 10 Trolley returns to full service Sunday, September 1.
Regional Rail: Additional cars will be added to regular service trips, and SEPTA is planning additional late night service on most Regional Rail lines following the concert on both nights. See the late night Regional Rail schedule for details.
Sales locations: Token 2-packs will be available for sale during the event at the the following locations:
Labor Day: Service details for Labor Day are available on SEPTA's Annual Service Calendar.
Fall schedules go into effect September 1.
