SEPTA is looking to the Phillies' home opener Friday to pitch its new fare card to baseball fans who use the Broad Street Line to get to games.
SEPTA Key is being phased in as a replacement for monthly and weekly passes and tokens on SEPTA's systems. While it will eventually be available for every route operated by SEPTA, for now it's usable on city buses, trolleys, and subways. Along with mimicking existing fare plans, the card also offers a Travel Wallet that allows irregular riders to maintain accounts and draw down on them when they use public transit. SEPTA will have staff at subway stops to help people use the kiosks.
The cards are available through kiosks at every stop on the Market-Frankford and Broad Street lines, and a Travel Wallet account can be set up with a $10 minimum deposit.
