SEPTA Key Cards are now available for customers at a number of External Retail locations, expanding the availability of Key beyond Transit Station and Bus Loop Fare Kiosks and SEPTA Sales Offices. Scroll down for more info.
Following the end of token sales at all SEPTA-operated locations on Monday, 4/30, SEPTA will launch several enhancements to the SEPTA Key program for new and existing cardholders beginning May 4, 2018 - like reducing the minimum amount to load funds onto the SEPTA Key Card Travel Wallet from $10 to $5.
In addition, on May 4, the $4.95 cost to get a Key Card will go into effect. As an incentive to protect the customer’s Transit Pass or Travel Wallet funds, against loss or theft, SEPTA will introduce a reimbursement offer when customers register a new Key Card purchased on or after May 4. If you register your Key Card within 30 days of the purchase date, the $4.95 fee will automatically be applied to your Key Card Travel Wallet. These funds can then be used to pay for individual rides or towards the future purchase of a TransPass or One Day Convenience Pass. This reimbursement will not apply to any SEPTA Key Cards obtained prior to May 4 and will be limited to two Cards per Customer Account. You can register your Card online at SEPTAKey.org or by calling the Key Customer Call Center at 1-855-567-3782. For the full press release click here or here for español.
So now is really the time to make the switch. Not only is SEPTA Key a less jingle-y way to pay but the SEPTA Key Travel Wallet allows you to pay as you go and you receive a discount for each ride ($2.00 versus the $2.50 cash fare). It's just like using a token without all of that heavy metal in your pocket or purse! Best part - your SEPTA Key is reloadable, reusable and replaceable if lost. Try doing that with a token!
