SEPTA Token Sales Phase-Out To Begin Monday, January 22

Transit News | January 10th, 2018

SEPTA would like to remind customers that token sales at cashiers’ booths and vending machines at Market-Frankford and Broad Street Line stations will be phased out.

The phase-out of sales at cashiers’ booths will begin Monday, January 22 and continue through the first week of February. Then, starting Monday, February 12 and continuing through the week of February 28, all remaining vending machines will be removed.

In March, SEPTA will begin phasing out token sales at the remaining authority-owned locations, including major sales offices and Regional Rail stations.

The TMA Bucks Transit Commuter Store stopped selling tokens effective December 29, 2017.

Please note that SEPTA will also continue to accept tokens for fare payment.

The phase-out of token sales represents the next major step forward for the SEPTA Key fare modernization project. Customers who still use tokens and paper transfers are urged to make the switch now to a SEPTA Key card, which are currently free with a $10 minimum Travel Wallet load. The Travel Wallet feature allows customers to add value to a SEPTA Key card for tap-and-go travel on all transit modes, including buses, city and suburban trolleys, trackless trolleys, the Market-Frankford Line, the Broad Street-Line/Broad-Ridge Spur and the Norristown High Speed Line. Customers who currently use tokens, paper transfers or pay with cash can transition to the Key and leave behind the days of worrying about having exact change or pre-purchasing tokens.
