One way fare is $2.50 cash on the Norristown High Speed Line. You must have exact change if paying the Operator. The Operator cannot make change.
Quick Trips are available from the Fare Kiosks located at all Broad Street and Market-Frankford Line stations. The kiosks accept credit/debit cards and cash [no exact change needed!]. You can purchase one-way Quick Trip tickets for travel at any MFL/BSL station for use at any MFL/BSL station. This allows you the flexibility to buy two Quick Trips at one time – one for the start of your trip, and the second for your return trip. All Quick Trip tickets must be used on the date of purchase. Quick Trips do not work on the bus.
Your best bet, is a SEPTA Key card. Like a Quick Trip, it is also available from the Fare Kiosk (or you can get one from the Villanova Regional Rail Station) but unlike a Quick Trip, it is reloadable and reusable. The SEPTA Key Travel Wallet allows you to pay as you go and you'll receive a discount for each ride ($2.00 versus the $2.50 cash fare). And each transfer is only $1. This means your trip there is $3 (you can transfer from the Market-Frankford Line to the Broad Street Line FOR FREE at 15th Street/City Hall). This means your round trip is just $6!
You must load a minimum of $1 at a Fare Kiosk or $5 online. Funds in your Travel Wallet can only be used to pay for one (1) person. It cannot be tapped multiple times to pay for anyone traveling with you. Best part – your SEPTA Key gets you more than just a ride. Flash it for discounts on food, drink, museums, sports, shops and more. Click here for a full list of Partners.
