SEPTA’s lottery enrollment started at 12:01 a.m. Monday for Regional Rail passes during the pope’s visit to Philadelphia.
People who would like to enroll have all day Monday to do this. The web enrollment for the lottery ends 24 hours after, at 11:59 p.m.
No matter what time you enter your lottery entry, everyone has the same opportunity for being chosen, SEPTA says.
“The lottery system, which will be constructed in partnership with Philadelphia business Ticketleap and hosted by Amazon.com, is being designed to accommodate significant demand,” SEPTA said in a statement.
These directions were offered by SEPTA on the best way to enter:
This will take customers right to the lottery type on the web site with the entry form of Ticketleap.
-Select traveling dates –
-Enter as much as three outlying Regional Rail Stations that are favorite
-Amount of passes: Up to 10 each day can be requested by customers. One can be requested by customers having a legal PA Disability Transit ID Card or Medicare Card
-Legal entries will be place in winners and a database chosen at random by Ticketleap. Customers with winning entries will receive a “congratulations” e-mail on Thursday. The passes will be mailed by sEPTA to customers.
The initial effort to offer the passes July 20th , on Monday, resulted in the crash in their web site.
The passes are $10.
More info will be released by SEPTA about passes for bus lines and their other train.
