SEPTA Implementing Contactless Payment

August 27, 2020

    Did you know about SEPTA’S Sustainable and COVID safe plans?


    Effective Friday, October 2, 2020

    With the launch of the SEPTA Key Card Travel Wallet feature for Regional Rail, the sale of paper tickets – single trip and 10 trip strips will end effective Friday, October 2, 2020

    A Key Card is a convenient, contactless way to pay your fare. Travel Wallet funds never expire and always offer the lowest price fare option whenever you travel

    Paper tickets will continue to be accepted through the valid date stamped on the back

    What should you do?

    Buy a SEPTA Key Card

    Key Cards can be purchased at all SEPTA Sales Offices including outlying station Ticket Offices

    Register your Key Card to protect your Travel Wallet funds in the event your Card is ever lost or stolen. The $4.95 purchase cost will be credited back to your Card if you register it within 30 days of purchase
