USING SEPTA KEY IS AS EASY AS...
TAPRIDETAP

  • TAP your Key Card at one of the platform Validators at your home station
  • Enjoy your RIDE
  • TAP your Key Card again at the Validator when you get to your destination to exit the station or close your trip
  • If you forget to tap before boarding the train, ask the Conductor to tap your Key Card on their handheld device
  • At Temple, Jefferson, Suburban, 30th St. and University City Stations you will tap at the turnstiles to get in and out of the paid area


UPCOMING SEPTA KEY FEATURES FOR REGIONAL RAIL

  • After the Early Adopters, the rest of the Zones (1,2,3, and remaining 4) will follow for customers who purchase TrailPasses
  • Key Card Fare Options will expand to the Travel Wallet feature - available for riders who use Tickets or pay Cash on the Train today
  • Paying for Daily Parking at a Station Parking Pay Station

As part of the preparations for the Early Adopters launch, the new Key turnstiles and ADA gates are being activated at all Center City Rail stations. The turnstiles at Jefferson Station are currently in operation and will be followed by University City on July 2, Temple University on July 9, Suburban on July 16, and 30th Street by the end of July. Once the roto-arms are up and the turnstiles are in operation at all of the Center City Stations, customers will TAP their Key Card or SWIPE their magnetic strip Pass at the turnstile to enter and exit

Regional Rail customers who are not part of the Early Adopters program can continue to buy and use all of the current fare instruments -- magnetic stripe TrailPasses and paper tickets.
