Grab your keys to get on the train.

The SEPTA Key “Early Adopters” Pro­gram will ex­pand to in­clude all Zone 3 re­gional rail sta­tions in Oc­to­ber, ac­cord­ing to a re­lease. The pro­gram was launched for Zone 4 rid­ers in Au­gust.

Key Cards loaded with Monthly TrailPasses will be avail­able for pur­chase at SEPTA sales of­fices start­ing Sept. 20 and can be used for travel be­gin­ning Mon­day, Oct. 1, while Weekly TrailPasses for the week of Oct. 1 can be pur­chased be­gin­ning Sept. 26.

Cards can be reg­is­tered on­line at sep­ to pre­vent against theft of loss and can also be set up to auto-load new pass pur­chases ev­ery week or month. Travel Wal­let and other Re­gional Rail fare prod­ucts will not be avail­able on SEPTA Key Cards yet, how­ever.

All cur­rently ex­ist­ing fare in­stru­ments, in­clud­ing mag­netic stripe passes and pa­per tick­ets, will re­main avail­able for pur­chase and use on re­gional rail lines un­til fur­ther no­tice.
