March SEPTA Key Update

March 2016

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.
