Up to date parade info: Thursday is shaping up to be an incredible day for Philadelphia. Here are a few resources to help you plan your Eagles celebration.

Text "ReadyEagles" to 888-777 to receive free parade-related text updates about transit, public safety and more. SEPTA: Free Rides & Adjusted Schedules SEPTA will offer free rides on the Broad Street and Market-Frankford lines all day on Thursday, thanks to support from Independence Blue Cross. Keep in mind that the lines will serve a reduced number of stations. Most notably, the City Hall and 15th Street stations will be closed. SEPTA is using two major events to inform its plans for Thursday: the 2008 Phillies parade and the 2015 pope visit. To move large crowds efficiently and safely and to avoid the overcrowding people remember from 2008, SEPTA plans to get about 500,000 to the parade and home by making the following adjustments: • All SEPTA lines, including the Regional Rails, subway and el, will operate with express routes, adjusted schedules and fewer stops. • Regional Rails will offer only inbound service in the morning, and only outbound service in the afternoon and evening. • Regional Rail service will end at around 9:30 p.m. to prepare for normal service on Friday morning. • Only pre-purchased fares will be accpeted on Regional Rails—no cash. In addition, individual ride tickets will not be accepted. Weekly and monthly passes will be accepted. SEPTA is selling 50,000 Independence Day Passes, now available for a reduced rate of $10; many suburban stations have run out of the passes, but they are still available at Jefferson, Suburban and 30th Street stations. Find the best, most up-to-date SEPTA information on septa.org. Parking The Philadelphia Parking Authority will not enforce meters, kiosks or time limits on residential streets on Thursday. If people must drive to the city, the PPA encourages them to park in off-street lots and garages and contact individual parking facilities for rates and availability ahead of time. Find more information about parking on philapark.org.
