NJ Transit Officials Give Preparation Tips to Travelers Ahead of Eagles Parade

Last Edited:

New Jersey Transit is making adjustments to its service and providing some travel tips for customers for the World Champion Philadelphia Eagles' victory parade on Thursday, February 8th.

Due to the high number of tickets already sold, NJ Transit officials announced they have suspended ticket sales to all points between Atlantic City and Philadelphia.

All Philadelphia bus services between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. will make a single stop in Center City, Philly at 6th and Race streets, and all Access Link trips will be canceled.

Also, beverages of any kind will be prohibited on all trains and buses traveling to and from Philadelphia and on River Line light rail vehicles the day of the parade.

Transit officials are reminding travelers to check their website and social media pages for updates throughout the day tomorrow.

They are also reminding non-parade customers to adjust their travel plans both before and after the Eagles festivities.

On Sunday, February 4th, the Eagles upset the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII, 41-33, and millions of fans are expected to swoop into Philadelphia to celebrate their historic win.
