Eagles fans may run into commuting problems

The first Tuesday-night NFL game since 1946 is expected to create some commuting headaches tonight in Philadelphia. On Sunday, the NFL decided to postpone the Vikings-Eagles game because of the snow.  That creates some transit problems for those who want to use SEPTA to attend the game, which starts at 8 p.m. Sylvana Hoyos of the transit agency said SEPTA is not adding additional regional rail service. She urges fans to use the Market-Frankford and Broad Street subway lines.”We encourage them to use the terminus stations of the Market-Frankford and the Broad Street line,” said Hoyos. “As far as regional rail, service will be coordinated between our supervisors out in the field to hold some late trains to accommodate passenger flow.”Hoyos said using the ends of the Broad Street Line in Olney or the Market-Frankford Line in Upper Darby or Frankford is the best way to move around after the game.
