PHILADELPHIA (November 1, 2023) – SEPTA would like to inform customers that the Authority will no longer accept tokens for fare payment effective January 1, 2024.
The sale of tokens ended in 2018; however, SEPTA has continued to accept tokens on buses and trolleys, and via fare kiosks located at stations and bus loops.
Customers must use any remaining tokens before they expire at the end of the year. Tokens are valued at $2 each and are not redeemable for cash.
SEPTA encourages customers to add the value of their tokens to a SEPTA Key card at a fare kiosk. Tokens can be used to load a pass to a Key card, or to add funds to the Travel Wallet feature.
Travel Wallet can be used to pay for trips on all modes, including buses, trolleys, the Market-Frankford Line, the Broad Street Line, the Norristown High Speed Line, and Regional Rail. Customers who use Travel Wallet on SEPTA Key are also eligible for two free transfers.
SEPTA Key cards cost $4.95 and can be purchased at SEPTA Sales Offices and participating retailers. Registering a Key card protects the fares in the event it is ever lost or stolen. Customers who register their Key card within 30 days are refunded the $4.95 purchase price in the Travel Wallet.
