SEPTA Quick Trip Flexibility Expands on Market-Frankford & Broad Street Lines

Start & Return Quick Trip Tickets Can Now Be Purchased Together

As part of the continuing expansion of the SEPTA Key, SEPTA is adding more flexibility for riders who use Quick Trip tickets for travel on the Market-Frankford (MFL) and Broad Street (BSL) Lines.

Starting Friday, Oct. 6, customers can purchase one-way Quick Trip tickets for travel at any MFL/BSL station for use at any MFL/BSL station. This will allow customers the flexibility to buy two Quick Trips at one time – one for the start of their trip, and the second for their return trip. All Quick Trip tickets must be used on the date of purchase.

Until now, Quick Trips have only been valid for one-way travel from the station where the ticket was purchased. This added convenience allows customers to purchase Quick Trips for both legs of their trip in one transaction at a SEPTA Key Fare Kiosk. SEPTA Key Fare Kiosks are located at all Broad Street and Market-Frankford Line stations.

Launched in fall 2016, the Quick Trip is a single-ride, magnetic stripe ticket for Market-Frankford and Broad Street Line service. A Quick Trip is $2.50, the same as SEPTA’s regular cash fare.

The Quick Trip has added flexibility for riders by allowing them to use credit and debit cards for single-trip travel. The kiosks also give customers change if they use cash and don’t have exact fare. Here are some other important notes about Quick Trips for SEPTA customers:

  • Each Quick Trip is valid for one trip only – no transfers/no reloads. (Note: Riders who need to transfer are encouraged to get a SEPTA Key Card and load money in the Travel Wallet)
  • A Quick Trip is valid for travel only on the date purchased
  • Swipe the Quick Trip at a turnstile for entrance to all Market Frankford and Broad Street Line Stations
  • Quick Trips are not valid for use on buses at any time
  • The new two-trip purchase does not apply to Regional Rail Quick Trips for the Airport Line
