SEPTA Key Senior ID Cards expiring in 2020 will be extended for 12 months

SEPTA has informed my office that it is providing a one (1) year extension of all SEPTA Key Senior ID Cards expiring in the 2020 calendar year. Seniors with a card expiring in 2020 will be able to continue to ride SEPTA using their current card for 12 months beyond the printed date of expiration (for example, cards with a May 2020 expiration date will continue to be valid for travel through May 2021).

Even though no SEPTA Key Senior ID Cards will expire during the 2020 calendar year, cardholders with a Senior ID Card expiring in 2020, who wish to optionally renew their card in the coming year, can obtain same-day card renewal at one of the below locations:

  • SEPTA Headquarters – 1234 Market St., Philadelphia, Pa. 19107.

  • SEPTA Accessible Travel Center – Room #109, Suburban Station, 15 N. 16th St, Philadelphia, Pa. 19107.

The changes noted above apply only to cards expiring in calendar year 2020 and do not affect new applications in any way. My office will continue to process in-person applications for new SEPTA Key Senior ID cards, which are available to everyone age 65 or older with a valid ID. Same-day SEPTA Key Senior ID cards are also available at SEPTA Headquarters and the Accessible Travel Center in Center City. The SEPTA Key Senior ID card offers free travel on all SEPTA transportation within Pennsylvania, including buses, trolleys, subways, and Regional Rail.

In the coming year, I will be working with SEPTA as it develops a process that will allow my office to handle card renewals in the future, and I look forward to continuing our partnership to bring access to this program to my constituents. Please do not hesitate to contact my office at (484) 200-8265 or RepCiresi@pahouse.net with any questions.
