Reduced Fare Program

Reduced Fare

Riders with disabilities are eligible for:

  • Half fare travel on SEPTA services (Reduced Fare card holders only)
  • Two free transfers on buses, trolleys and Subway/Elevated lines within 120 minutes of first tap (Reduced Fare card holders only)

Transfers occur when a rider takes a single one-way trip on transit and then changes to a different transit line or service within two hours of that trip.
