What is the Best Way to Get to Lincoln Financial Field?

Mass transit is likely easiest if you're coming from Pennsylvania. If you're coming from New Jersey, we have detailed driving directions posted below.

What are the Mass Transit Options to Get to Lincoln Financial Field?

Taking mass transit to the stadium complex in South Philadelphia is surprisingly easy.

If you're coming from Center City, take the SEPTA Broad Street Subway line southbound. The exit — NRG Station – is the very last stop on the line.

If you're taking mass transit from the suburbs... take regional rail to Suburban Station (which is located at 16th and JFK). Follow signs for the Broad Street Line / Stadium Complex. It will be clearly marked as you walk through the Center City Hall Station to board the Broad Street Line.

Mass Transit Options Are Available with the Broad Street Line

SEPTA will supplement regular service to NRG station with ten express trains leaving Fern Rock Transportation Center every ten minutes beginning at 4:25 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday to accommodate the crowds for WrestleMania.

Additional service is also available to the Wells Fargo Center events on Friday, Saturday and Monday, SEPTA says.

The Broad Street Line is a GREAT option to get to and from the stadium complex.

Yes, it will be running after the event. And the Broad Street Line now accepts tap-to-pay including ApplePay (previously you needed a SEPTA Key Card). You can access it at City Hall Station if transferring via the Regional Rail (just follow signs).

SEPTA Also Increases Regional Rail Service For WrestleMania

The area's largest transportation provider, SEPTA is also offering additional trains on many of its most popular regional rail lines.

This includes Chestnut Hill East, Fox Chase, Lansdale/Doylestown, Manayunk/Norristown, Media/Wawa, Paoli/Thorndale, and the Trenton Line. You can view timetables on their website. 

If you're taking the regional rail, you WILL need a SEPTA Key Card, which is quite easy, and it's recommended you purchase fares in advance so you're not waiting on a platform.
