Murt to Host SEPTA to Help Seniors Get Free Key Cards
HARRISBURG — Seniors who wish to sign up for SEPTA’s Key Senior ID card will be able to apply for one and have their photos taken at the district office of Rep. Thomas Murt (R-Montgomery/Philadelphia).

“This is all part of SEPTA’s transition to their cashless SEPTA Key fare program,” Murt said. “I am pleased to make my office available to help seniors apply for a special card and have their photos taken without having to travel to a SEPTA sales location.”

A SEPTA representative will be at Murt’s office at 19 S. York Road in Hatboro on Feb. 3, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. No appointment is needed. Seniors must bring a valid state-issued photo ID card with their birthdate. Call 215-674-3755 for more information.

Under SEPTA’s new fare payment and collection system, called SEPTA Key, seniors age 65 and older will continue to ride free at all times on all SEPTA transit services, including buses, trolleys, the Market-Frankford Line, the Broad Street Line and the Norristown High Speed Line. Regional Rail fares for seniors will continue to be $1 for rides within Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania seniors who possess state-issued photo IDs are automatically eligible to participate in SEPTA’s Seniors Ride Free Program. There is nothing to sign up for, and unexpired driver’s licenses or state-issued IDs can be swiped at the turnstile or onboard a vehicle.

But for seniors who do not want to use their driver’s license can register and have their picture taken for the new, free SEPTA Key Senior ID card.

“I invite all seniors who would like a new SEPTA Key card to stop by on Feb. 3,” Murt said.
