SEPTA Key Early Adopters Program Expands With ‘Quick Trips’

Transit News | September 27th, 2016

The SEPTAKey Early Adopters program has expanded to include “Quick Trips” — single trip tickets for Market-Frankford and Broad Street Line service that can be purchased at station kiosks. The addition of the Quick Trip feature gives riders the option to purchase their fare in the station without worrying about having a token or exact change beforehand.

A Quick Trip is a disposable magnetic strip ticket that customers can swipe at new Key turnstiles. A Quick Trip is valid for one-way travel from the station where it is purchased, and must be used on the day it is purchased. Station and date-of-purchase details are printed on the ticket.

There is no discount for a Quick Trip – the regular one-way transit cash fare of $2.25 applies. Also, a Quick Trip cannot be used in combination with a transfer. This new feature does, however, give riders added flexibility by allowing the use of debit and credit cards for single-trip purchases at station kiosks, and riders who use cash will receive change if they don’t have exact fare.
