Breaking: Septa To Offer Free Train Rides This Weekend To Promote New Late Night Regional Rail Service

Septa is slowly but surely coming around. New General Manager Joseph Casey is already proving to be infinitely better than his predecessor, Faye Moore.

The latest example — not only expanding service, but also doing things to promote said service to potential new riders.
SEPTA will offer free rides to passengers on all trains scheduled to arrive and depart Center City after 6:30pm, September 19-20

In an effort to introduce their new late night regional rail service on Routes R5 Paoli/Thorndale, R6 Norristown and R7 Trenton Lines, SEPTA will offer free rides to passengers on all trains scheduled to arrive and depart Center City after 6:30pm, September 19-20.

The free ride promotion is valid for trains scheduled to arrive or depart Center City after 6:30pm ONLY. Normal fare collection procedures are in effect for all other trains arriving prior to 6:30pm.
You know, for kids.

Well done Septa. Now, we’ve been meaning to talk to you about a bar car …
