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.
