The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority is making the transition from the early adopters phase of its smart card roll-out. Starting on February 9, SEPTA made the Key Card more widely available, starting at the 69th Street Transportation Center.
“The SEPTA Key is making travel more convenient for our riders, as reloadable cards are replacing outdated fare instruments such as magnetic-stripe passes, tokens, and paper transfers,” said general manager Jeffrey D. Knueppel in a statement. “We look forward to welcoming more riders to the future of fare payment with this latest program expansion.”
Beginning February 13 and continuing into early March, customers will be able to purchase the smart cards at additional locations. Key Cards will be available with the purchase of weekly and monthly TransPasses and then reloadable for all passes and the travel wallet.
