SEPTA Key’s New Multi-Rider Feature

Transit News | February 20th, 2024

SEPTA customers can activate SEPTA Key’s NEW multi-rider feature effective Monday, February 26, 2024.

The multi-rider feature allows up to five (5) riders on one SEPTA Key card. Multi-rider is available on all modes including bus, trolley, Broad Street Line, Market-Frankford Line, Norristown High Speed Line, and Regional Rail.

To activate and use multi-rider – you must have Travel Wallet autoload turned on. The threshold is $20 and the autoload minimum is $10. Your Travel Wallet must have a balance equal to the minimum amount required for the multi-rider trips. For example – you need $10 to tap on a bus five (5) times.

All multi-rider taps must occur within one (1) minute of the initial tap. Wait for the validator response (green check and accepted tone) between each tap. If there is a delay in the validator response – please wait. Do not tap more than one time for each ride. Taps can be on a single bus/trolley validator or a combination of taps on different turnstiles at a station.

And don’t worry – you can still use your SEPTA Key card as a solo rider even if you have multi-rider turned on. Just be careful not to double tap.
