We no longer accept Medicare Cards.
We no longer accept the paper PA Senior Citizen Transit ID Card.
We still accept valid Pennsylvania Driver's Licenses and Non-Driver IDs with a magnetic stripe on the back. But we do not accept the new licenses issued by PennDOT on or after July 2017 without magnetic stripes.
Seniors need a SEPTA Key Senior Photo ID card to receive free rides on Transit and Regional Rail. This is one positive change – if you have a SEPTA Key Senior Photo ID card, you no longer have to pay $1 on Regional Rail.
You can apply for a SEPTA Key Senior ID Card at:
SEPTA Headquarters (Lower Lobby)
1234 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, & Friday: 8a - 2p
Wednesday: 8a - 4p
SEPTA Accessible Travel Center
Room 109 Suburban Station
Mon - Friday: 8a - 2p
Participating Pennsylvania Senate and House offices in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties (please check with your legislator).
If you come to 1234 Market or to the Accessible Travel Center, you will receive your SEPTA Key Senior Card that same day. If you prefer to go to your legislator's office, you will receive your card in the mail in approximately 4 weeks.
If you are heading home after the show from Jefferson or Suburban Station, you need to have a fare in order to move through the turnstiles before proceeding to the train platform. Accepted fares include a SEPTA Key Card, SEPTA Key Senior Card/Current driver’s license with magnetic stripe (customers 65+ only), SEPTA Key Reduced Fare Card, February TrailPass, February TransPass (weekends only), SEPTA Regional Rail Ticket, and One Day Independence Pass.
