WEST CHESTER – April 11, 2017 – State Senator Andy Dinniman has partnered with SEPTA to hold a senior citizen enrollment event in preparation for the new SEPTA Key fare program on Thursday, April 13 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Surrey Senior Services in Devon.

The event is free and open to the public. No appointments are necessary.

All Pennsylvania residents, aged 65 years and older with valid, state-issued identification can register for the new, free SEPTA Key Senior ID Card. The card will guarantee that those who participate in SEPTA’s Seniors Ride Free Program will continue to ride free of charge when SEPTA transitions to its new, technologically modern fare payment and collection program.

“In the coming months, SEPTA will roll out its new electronic fare program, SEPTA KEY, on all of its service lines – bus, trolley, trackless trolley, high speed, regional rail and paratransit connect,” Dinniman said. “Eligible seniors will continue to ride buses free of charge at all times and pay a $1 regional fare for rides within the Commonwealth.

“However, seniors ought to obtain the SEPTA Key ID cards now in order to prepare for the transition. In fact, that is precisely why we are holding these free enrollment events at various locations throughout our region,” he added.

Dinniman emphasized that seniors, aged 65 and older, will continue to ride SEPTA buses free and SEPTA will continue to recognize their formally issued SEPTA Transit Passes, Medicare cards, or Pennsylvania Drivers Licenses and photo identification card to access free and discount fares during the transition.

“As of yet, there are no official changes, but it is important to be prepared for the transition to SEPTA Key and that is why we are encouraging seniors to get their new, free SEPTA Key Senior ID cards at one of the upcoming enrollment events,” he said.

Surrey Senior Services is located at 60 Surrey Way in Devon.
