SEPTA is dedicated to making it easier for customers to use our fixed-route and paratransit services through a comprehensive program of accessibility improvements — fleet enhancements, station construction, and other service initiatives. All buses in the five-county service region are accessible, and currently there are more than 100 accessible stations. SEPTA is working continuously to make existing stations accessible to benefit all SEPTA riders.
Operators, cashiers, station personnel, and supervisors receive ADA training. Service quality is monitored by a plainclothes observation “secret shopper” service.
Cashiers, ticket agents and rail personnel are required to assist you with fare payment or purchases. Also, using the SEPTA website you can purchase fare instruments by return mail.
Reduced Fare Key cards and Senior Fare Key Cards may be obtained at SEPTA headquarters, 1234 Market Street, Concourse level, by appointment only. Schedule an appointment online or call (215) 580-7145 and select option 6 between 8 am-noon or 1-5 pm Mondays-Fridays.
