SEPTA Key cards will continue to be free with the purchase of a transit pass or when loading Travel Wallet funds through April 30, 2018 with the planned $4.95 new card fee going into effect in May.
SEPTA will continue to accept purchased tokens for the foreseeable future, so customers will not lose money they have already spent on tokens.
Customers are reminded that tokens can be loaded onto Key cards, with the value added to the Travel Wallet that allows for convenient tap-and-go travel.
Tokens will continue to be sold in bulk to social service agencies beyond April 30, as work continues to implement a new method for these organizations to provide SEPTA fares to their clients. Third-party retailers will also continue to sell tokens to the general public beyond April 30.
The TMA Bucks Transit Commuter Store stopped selling tokens effective December 29, 2017.
SEPTA has been gradually phasing-out sales of tokens at authority-operated locations since January, first at cashiers’ booths and then with the removal of vending machines at Market-Frankford and Broad Street Line stations. In March and April, sales will end at Regional Rail stations, bus districts and SEPTA sales offices.
SEPTA Key provides the same fare payment methods and discounts that are currently offered with tokens, passes and paper transfers. For more information about the SEPTA Key visit www.septa.org/key.
