With more riders making the transition to SEPTA Key, token sales have been discontinued at cashiers’ booths at Market-Frankford and Broad Street Line stations. You also won't find a token machine - anywhere. Now we're moving towards discontinuing the sales of tokens and paper TransPasses at bus districts and at select Regional Rail stations. This phase-out will start at stations with a low volume of token sales, before moving to busier stations on April 6, including Temple University, Jefferson, Suburban, 30th Street and University City stations. Also, after April 6, there will still be 16 stations strategically located throughout the SEPTA system that will continue to sell tokens until further notice. Click here for that station list. Tokens will continue to be sold at major SEPTA Sales Offices and at over 200 third-party retailers until further notice. Click here for the full press release.
Now's the time to make the switch. Not only is SEPTA Key a less jingle-y way to pay but the SEPTA Key Travel Wallet allows you to pay as you go and you receive a discount for each ride ($2.00 versus the $2.50 cash fare). It's just like using a token without all of that heavy metal in your pocket or purse! Best part - your SEPTA Key is reloadable, reusable and replaceable if lost. Try doing that with a token!

And we've enhanced the messaging on the SEPTA Key Validators to help you better manage your Key Card while riding the system. Now, if your Card is declined when you tap at the Validator, you will see a message that tells you why. Keep reading to see what the messages look like, and what they mean!
