5:31 pm
you can expect long lines and lots of people and it's important to stay with the people you came with because in a crowd this size it's easy to get lost and more important to be aware of your surroundings. >> if you should see something us a call.spicious please give it doesn't have to be a package. if you think something is going on that doesn't feel right to you, trust your instincts, give us a call and give us an idea where you are and we'll make every effort to respond to that. >> there are 14 jumbotrons so everyone can see the celebration and sign language translators there for those that need them. and space is reserved for wheelchairs and special para drop-off locations are available as well. and with thousands of expected to descend on center city the big yes is how are you going to get there. septa is your best bet those hoping to get et passes ran into a bit of a snag. and john rawlins live with that

5:33 pm
to find out where and when they depart. go online parade, has links to septa's critical one day information. take for instance the paoli thorndale line. >> there are three of them leaving at 4:50 and 6:25 and 7:36. ardmore departures are 7:59. and they are first come first serve. and using special passes to avoid this. during the 2008 phillies parade thousands could not get aboard jammed trains and tomorrow septa expects to ideally move 70,000 riders on the rail system. the capacity. >> it's just math. we have 320 railroad cars running around with 155 people we can fit in them seated and standing and we know probably about 80 train trips are running
5:34 pm
tomorrow. and so it's just math here. just math and human nature to when and where people go to board a plane tomorrow. people expected to take regional rail to be patient and expect long lines and better off going early rather than late. u the best option as far as mass transit as far as the broad street line and septa lining, they can move an astounding 65,000 people an hour. live at 30th street station, john rawlins, channel 6 "action news." >> thank you. if you think about driving down tomorrow. that could be tricky as well. matt pellman is live now with what roads are closed already and when others will shut down. >> rick and monica this is where it steps off tomorrow morning, 11:00 broad street at paterson avenue, it's a different scene tomorrow morning, hopefully drier and a lot more crowded. of course broad street will be
5:35 pm
closed. as the route progresses up to city hall. and up the ben franklin parkway this afternoon the inbound indrive of the parkway is already blocked for preparations and outbound both drives are open and will close again after this evening's rush. and this is not likeal visit a few years ago in that highways and interstates like the vine street expressway will remain open tomorrow. but i expect a lot ramps off of those interstates to be blocked like the ramp to the vine to the parkway and 23rd street. and ramps connecting 95 with broad will all be closed throughout the day tomorrow. it's going to be a mess on the traffic and transit front because the bottom line is, our infrastructure in the city the roads and rails are not built to handle these size crowds if you are on the fence do i go or do i not go, i would t staying home and enjoying the parade fomfort of your 's a challenge to head i rea some of you it's
