SEPTA is reinventing the way it collects fares with the introduction of the SEPTA Key card. The Key card is a reloadable, contactless chip card that will eventually replace tokens and transfers Currently, Septa key cards are accepted on all buses, trackless trolleys, trolleys (City and Suburban) and will soon be accepted on the rail lines, as well. For more information, visit the SEPTA Key Card website.
SEPTA Key Senior ID Card
Seniors, age 65 years or older, ride free at all times on bus, subway, and trolley service. Regional Rail fares vary depending on your final destination ($1 within PA: 50% of regular weekday fare to NJ or DE). The new photo ID key card allows seniors to "tap and go" for these same trips, eliminating the need to show an ID to a cashier or operator. Local seniors may contact PA State Representative Kristine Howard's office at 610-251-1070 to make an appointment to obtain a Senior Key Card at no cost.
