    What better way to celebrate outdoor hockey with free transportation?

    SEPTA says it is offering Winter Classic fans a free trip on the Broad Street Line from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, January 2 for the NHL outdoor game between the New York Rangers and the Philadelphia Flyers.

    The transportation authority says it has partnered with Pepsi MAX to provide the free rides for the game.

    SEPTA is also offering hockey fans eight extra Sports Express trips on the Broad Street Line, which are scheduled to run every 10 minutes starting at approximately 11:30 a.m.

    The Rangers-Flyers game is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. at Citizens Bank Park. NHL crews have been working regularly to prepare the ice for the nationally televised game.
