PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) -- It's football season, and SEPTA is making sure Eagles fans make it home safely after home games.

It's that time of year again, and SEPTA is routing for Eagles fans this season with a new, free program.

"It's called the Free Rides Home Program," said SEPTA's Carla Showell-Lee. "It's on the Broad Street Line. It's between the Eagles and Vikings game on Sunday, October 7, and we're offering free rides from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. right from NRG Station."
 
And she says it's simply about safety.

"It's important because we always want to make sure our customers are offered a safe and convenient way for them to get home from the game," Showell-Lee said, "and we know our customers really love it."

In addition to free rides home for the remaining home games this season, SEPTA will be adding 10 sports express trains to their service on game day.
