On May 4th, the $4.95 fee to buy a SEPTA Key Card will go into effect. As an incentive to protect your Card against loss or theft, we will be offering a special promotion for all new Key Cards purchased on or after May 4th.

  • Buy a Key Card for $4.95 and purchase a SEPTA Transit fare at any SEPTA Sales Office or Fare Kiosk

    • Register your Card online at or by calling the Key Customer Call Center (1-855-567-3782).

During this promotion, SEPTA Ambassadors will be out at SEPTA Key purchase locations to provide helpful tips and assistance to Register your new Card.

To make the switch to SEPTA Key even easier we are lowering the minimum Travel Wallet load amount to $5.00 starting May 4th.
