SEPTA to Introduce New Three-Day Passes on Transit and Regional Rail

To add options and flexibility for passengers, SEPTA is offering new three-day passes for Transit and Regional Rail that will be available for purchase on a SEPTA Key Card. These new fare products go on sale starting Tuesday, Oct. 20.

The passes are part of the Fare Restructuring Plan, which was approved by the SEPTA Board and went into effect on July 1.

Three-Day Convenience Pass for Transit: $18
For passengers who use Transit modes, including buses, trolleys, the Market-Frankford and Broad Street Lines and the Norristown High Speed Line, the new Three-Day Convenience Pass offers deep discounts and is aimed at making travel easier.

At just $18, the pass offers a great value and savings over the purchase of three individual Convenience Passes. It is ideal for those who travel on SEPTA Transit routes less than five days a week, or for those who are enjoying a multiple-day stay in Philadelphia. The pass is valid for 72 hours after the customer’s first tap, and can be used for up to 24 rides over those three days.

Three-Day Independence Pass for Regional Rail: $36
The new three-day pass for Regional Rail is based on the existing Independence Pass. It essentially bundles three one-day passes together at a discounted rate. The pass can be used on any three days the rider chooses, providing added flexibility. On each day, a rider can use the pass for up to 10 combined trips on Regional Rail and Transit. The pass is activated for the day upon the rider’s first tap, and that day’s pass expires at 2 a.m. the following day.

When sales begin on Oct. 20, these new three-day passes will be available only on a SEPTA Key Card. To purchase a Key Card, customers can go to a SEPTA Station Fare Kiosk, a SEPTA Sales Office or an External Retail Network location. Once you have a card, load and reload products at any of the above locations or at, on the Official SEPTA App, or by calling the SEPTA Key Customer Call Center at (855) 567-3782.
