Kindergarten through 12th Grade Students

School districts in which a student resides are responsible for the student's transportation to and from school, within guidelines set forth by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Student fares are available to all school districts within the SEPTA service area.

Two-Trip Transit Partner Pass
Two-Trip Transit Partner Passes are valid for two trips on any bus, subway or trolley routes. They are not valid for use on Regional Rail. The two trips do not need to be taken on the same day. The pass is activated upon the first tap at a farebox or turnstile Validator. The Pass can be used in the absence of a Student Weekday Pass or for taking students on class trips.

Weekday Student Pass ($3.84 per valid day)
A weekday Student Pass is valid for trips on multiple bus, subway or trolley routes. They are not valid for use on Regional Rail. These passes can only be used by students for their travel to or from school, between the hours of 5:30 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. These passes are valid only on days in which school is in session.

Weekday Student Pass Upgrade for Regional Rail ($5.90 per valid day)
For primary and secondary school students using Regional Rail, the weekday Student Pass is upgradable to a Student Rail Pass. Student Rail Passes are valid for travel to all zones. This can be done at select Regional Rail ticket offices.

Upgrades are done between the Wednesday before and Tuesday of the valid week of the weekday Student Pass. The weekday Student Pass cannot be upgraded to a weekly TransPass or TrailPass.

Students must surrender their weekday Student Pass to receive a credit of $3.84 for each valid day of the pass, for use towards the purchase of a Student Rail Pass. The student must complete the upgrade, not a parent or guardian. Students not eligible to receive a weekday Student Pass can purchase a Student Rail Pass at a cost of $5.90 per valid day. In this instance, the student must show current primary or secondary school student picture identification.

School districts are responsible for establishing student fare use and pricing.

For more details about student fares, contact the Administrator at the student's school.
