August 1, 2019

Major developments and expansion of the SEPTA Key are happening, starting Aug. 1. Here's what SEPTA riders need to know.

 

The SEPTA Key is expanding to fully integrate all Regional Rail riders by the beginning of November, meaning no more weekly and monthly "legacy" trailpasses.

 

But that major development is not all that's happening with the transit agency's touchless ride pass, which all riders will eventually adopt according to SEPTA's grand plan.

 

There is also expansion of the Travel Wallet to include Regional Rail riders, expected near the end of 2019. What does all this mean? Some may even be asking: What is the Key Card?

Over the next four months, starting in August, the Key will be required of rail commuters who use weekly and monthly trailpasses. The rollout will occur in four phases:

 

— Aug. 1: Regional Rail riders who purchase weekly passes for Zone 3 and Zone Anywhere must purchase those passes through the Key Card.

— Oct. 1: Regional Rail riders who purchase monthly passes for Zone 3 and Zone Anywhere must purchase those passes through the Key Card.

 

— Nov. 1: Regional Rail riders who purchase monthly passes for Zone 1 and Zone 2 must purchase those passes through the Key Card.
