The official SEPTA app takes the real-time tools you find on the septa.org website and makes them available right at your fingertips on your iPhone. Our app brings the entire SEPTA transit network directly to you, wherever you are, whenever you want to travel.
We've put together some tips to help you get the most out of the app. We're also working to develop and improve this technology for Android users as well. We hope to have a new app out sometime this year, so stay tuned and keep checking this page for updates.
