Mobile Ticketing Pilot Project


Project Background

SEPTA and Mozio have partnered on a mobile ticketing pilot project to offer an easy, convenient, and affordable option for travel between the Philadelphia International Airport and Center City Philadelphia. Pre-purchase a mobile ticket from Mozio anytime, anywhere, from the convenience of your mobile device and use it on the SEPTA Airport Line train to travel right from your Terminal to one of SEPTA's Center City Stations (University City, 30th Street, Suburban, Jefferson, and Temple). The single-use, one way tickets are stored on your phone for convenient, cashless, and paperless transit to or from the Philadelphia International Airport.

Please be aware that SEPTA is not responsible for inactive, inaccessible, or expired tickets, nor is SEPTA responsible for technical problems with mobile devices, the Mozio platform, or the Mozio mobile app.
