• Be prepared to walk up to 3-4 miles to your destination after leaving your transit mode.

• Regardless of how you will travel to Philadelphia, anticipate that your return trip out of the city will take a long time and plan accordingly.

• Dress appropriately for the weather.

• General public entry will be based on a first-come, first-serve basis. Due to limited space, a portion of the guests traveling to Philadelphia may not be able to enter the secure areas shown on this map.

• Possession of a ticket does not guarantee entry into a ticketed event.

• Due to natural and manmade obstructions, Papal viewing areas will be limited. Consider watching Papal events at one of the public viewing screens located throughout the city.

• WMOF Volunteers and Pennsylvania National Guardsman will be stationed throughout center city Philadelphia to answer questions and assist guests with gaining access to Papal venues.

• Individuals seeking assistance with locating a lost or separated companion are directed to contact a reunification official at one of the “Medical Aid Stations” annotated on this map. Guests must be prepared to provide a detailed description of the individual that they are attempting to locate. Prior to attending a Papal event, it is suggested that guests use their mobile device to take a photograph of their traveling companions in order to aid reunification efforts.
