Reps. Brown, McClinton, Savage to host SEPTA Key photo ID events in September

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 1 – State Reps. Vanessa Lowery Brown, Joanna McClinton and Lynwood Savage will co-host two events for older residents of West Philadelphia to obtain their SEPTA Key photo ID cards.

SEPTA Key is the modern fare payment and collection system being unveiled by the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority. It offers seniors an alternative to using their Pennsylvania driver’s license or state-issued ID card.

The events will be Thursday, Sept 8 and Monday, Sept. 26 from 9 a.m. to noon at West Philadelphia Senior Community Center, 1016-26 N. 41st St., Philadelphia.

The new SEPTA Key card will have a contactless chip, so riders only will need to scan it to pay for their ride.

While an appointment is not required to attend the events, interested attendees can call their local legislator's office for more information. Brown can be reached at 215-879-6615; McClinton at 215-748-6712 and Savage at 215-879-6625.
