Suburban Transit Begins “Pay as you Enter” at 69th Street Transportation Center on Monday, September 1, 2014

Riders will now use the same fare payment procedures used on all other SEPTA routes

Starting with the annual fall schedule change on Monday, September 1, 2014, SEPTA will implement the “Pay As You Enter” fare policy on Suburban Transit Routes departing 69th Street Transportation Center.

This policy change is designed to shrink dwell time at passenger stops, reduce fare evasion and streamline travel for riders who will now be able to exit via the rear doors of buses without going back to the fare box upon departure.

“Pay As You Enter” is the way that fares are currently paid for travel towards 69th Street Transportation Center and is how passengers currently pay fares when using City Transit Routes. Now with every trip, passengers will use the same fare payment procedure now used on all other SEPTA routes.

Leaflets and signs notifying riders about the new payment procedures are posted at 69th Street Transportation Center and on Additional SEPTA staff will be available to ease passengers through the transition during the first week of September. Riders with additional questions can visit the Customer Service Office at the Transportation Center or contact the Travel Information Center at 215-580-7800.
