SEPTA will release a link to register for the lottery beginning August 12th. You’ll have three days to register. Passes are $10 ($5 for those eligible for reduced fares) and carry a $1.95 shipping fee.
SEPTA says it will release more information about Subway-Surface trolleys, bus, Market-Frankford El and Broad Street Subway service during pope week after this lottery concludes next week.
