In the meanwhile, SEPTA is adding some new payment options. “Quick Trips” is being introduced at three stations in South Philly to allow passengers to pay for a single trip ticket of $2.25 without needing to have exact change for the teller, instead this fare can now be paid with credit and debit cards.

Snyder SEPTA station will be the first South Philly location to offer new Key cards in June

We’ve been anxiously awaiting SEPTA’s step into the future with a token-less system for years now. SEPTA Key was originally set to be unveiled in 2014, only to have the release date pushed back again and again. Now there’s finally an official date for the program to begin.

June 13 will mark the beginning of the SEPTA Key, but not everyone will be able to use it right away. This release date is meant specifically for “early adopters,” including 10,000 passengers who will be able to buy a weekly or monthly pass. If you want a pass in South Philly, you’re going to have to get it at the Snyder Avenue station on the Broad Street Line.

SEPTA Key expected in April 2016, but we’ll believe it when we see it

Original completion date for SEPTA Key was expected to be in 2013. The date obviously has kept being pushed back, so forgive us for our skepticism about when SEPTA will finally take this step.

But once it happens, we’ll be totally on board. According to PlanPhilly, SEPTA’s latest plan is to begin rolling out this new fare payment option by April 2016.

Spotted: Where we’re going, we don’t need SEPTA tokens edition

In one of the greatest scenes in Back to the Future, nay, cinematic history, Dr. Emmett Brown confidently explains to a young Marty McFly, “Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.” The Delorean calmly lifts its wheels and blasts off into the future. Woah.

Enter SEPTA Key, the new payment system that will soon be implemented on all subways, trolleys and buses throughout the city. We spotted one of the new fangled kiosks at the Tasker/Morris Station. While it isn’t as cool as a levitating, time-traveling Delorean that runs on bio-fuels, it’s certainly a new beginning to a brighter future for SEPTA and its riders.
