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 septakey.org 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.
