Here is what you need to know if you are heading to the Linc:

Getting to the Linc

  • SEPTA is an easy way to get the to show. Lincoln Financial Field is steps away from NRG Station on the Broad Street Line. Bus Routes 4 & 17 can also get you there.
  • There will be extra service on the Broad Street Line before and after the show.
  • Trains run every 8 to 10 minutes. Immediately following the end of the show, fans can find northbound trains waiting to provide local and express service back towards Center City and Fern Rock Transportation Center.
  • If you’re coming from New Jersey, it’s easy to transfer from PATCO to the Broad Street Line. Exit PATCO at 13th/Locust Street Station. Take the escalator or stairs to concourse level and exit PATCO’s fare gates. Follow the orange signs approximately one block through the concourse to the Broad Street Line at Walnut/Locust.

You can also park at Lincoln Financial Field for $35, but officials say expect heavy traffic in the parking lots.
