SEPTA has announced that with more riders making the transition to the SEPTA Key, token sales will be phased out at cashiers’ booths and vending machines at Market-Frankford and Broad Street Line stations starting in mid-January 2018.
Tokens will continue to be sold at major SEPTA sales offices, Regional Rail stations and at over 200 third-party retailers until further notice.
As of December 29, SEPTA tokens will no longer be sold at the TMA Bucks Transit Commuter Store.
The phase-out of token sales represents the next major step forward for the SEPTA Key fare modernization project.
Earlier this year, SEPTA ended sales of “legacy” magnetic strip TransPasses at its sales offices, which has resulted in most weekly and monthly TransPass customers moving to reloadable SEPTA Key Cards. In addition, the Travel Wallet – the pay-as-you-go option that provides the same discounted fare as a token – has enticed customers to move to the SEPTA Key. Key Cards are currently free with a $10 minimum load.
