Two-Week Rollout at Market-Frankford Line, Broad Street Line & Major Bus Loop Fare Kiosks
March 09, 2017
PHILADELPHIA, PA (March 9, 2017) - Starting Monday, March 13, SEPTA Key fare purchase choices are expanding with added availability of the Travel Wallet at Market-Frankford Line, Broad Street Line and major bus loop fare kiosks. The two-week rollout schedule is attached with this press release and posted online at www.septa.org/key.
The Travel Wallet feature allows customers to add value to a SEPTA Key Card for tap-and-go travel. 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. The Travel Wallet will automatically deduct single-rides at the discounted token rate, and process transfers.
Here is how customers can obtain and use SEPTA Key Card with Travel Wallet. A user video is also posted online at www.septa.org/key:
This Travel Wallet expansion moves SEPTA further toward full implementation of the Key, while giving customers time to transition from using tokens, paper transfers and cash. Weekly and Monthly TransPass users are also moving to Key Cards.
"The future of fare payment is here for SEPTA bus, subway and trolley riders," said SEPTA General Manager Jeffrey D. Knueppel. "This is a great time for customers to transfer to the SEPTA Key, and begin enjoying all the options and benefits it offers."
