SEPTA's new fare card went on sale Monday morning.
SEPTA Key, the electronic fare card that will eventually replace passes and tokens on the region's public transportation network, is being made available to 10,000 people on a first-come, first-served basis.
Cash, tokens, and - for the first time on SEPTA's system - credit cards can be used on kiosks to buy the new cards.
These kiosks are in six stops on the Market Frankford Line and six stops on the Broad Street Line. Once you have the card, though, you can "reload" it like an E-ZPass - setting up an account online, or over the phone, and adding to it as needed.
The new cards can now be purchased as a weekly pass, which offers as many as 56 rides in a week for $24.
Next Monday, SEPTA will make a monthly option available for the Key Card, offering as many as 240 rides for $91. The debut comes after years of installation and months of testing that sought to remove bugs from the system before the public uses it.
The cards will work on the subway, buses, trolleys and, the Norristown High Speed Line, and for weekend trips on the Regional Rail.
