Our contractors have been working to complete the installation of new SEPTA Key equipment - farebox validators on vehicles, and new turnstiles and fare kiosks at Transit stations. So far, 1607 surface vehicle fareboxes have been upgraded with red Validator pads with no change, as of yet, in the way customers pay their fare to ride on buses, trolleys, and trackless trolleys.
On the Market Frankford and Broad Street Lines, the fareline upgrades were planned so that most stations have a mix of legacy equipment - turnstiles that accept tokens and coins - and new turnstiles that only accept passes. There are, however, 17 stations outfitted with all new SEPTA Key fareline equipment. At these locations, customers can continue to use tokens and coins by paying their fare at the Cashier Booth.

As part of the SEPTA Key program rollout for Transit, we are continuing the work to modernize ALL of the fareline equipment at Broad Street Line and Market Frankford Line Stations.
In the first phase of this project, some of the existing turnstiles were replaced with new SEPTA Key turnstiles (with red Validator pads). The new turnstile equipment does not accept Tokens or Coins so customers either must use the old turnstile or pay at the Cashier Booth. Read more.
After months of speculation and a few well-placed hints on our part, we are pleased to officially announce the name of our new fare payment and collection program -- SEPTA Key. The full transition of the SEPTA Key program is scheduled to take place in two stages - Transit (Bus, Trolley, Trackless Trolley, and High Speed Lines) in 2016 and Regional Rail and our CCT Connect Paratransit services in 2017.
