In addition to its fixed-route services, SEPTA provides paratransit service for senior citizens and individuals with disabilities through its Customized Community Transportation program.
CCT Connect services are provided by contract carriers who provide rides to customers, train their drivers, and maintain vehicles. SEPTA oversees the carriers, provides centralized driver training, and directly manages the reservation, scheduling, and service monitoring for Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties.
Scope of Service
CCT Connect paratransit is public transportation regulated by state and federal agencies, including the Federal Transportation Administration and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
It is not a taxi service, medical transport, or “special care” service. You should plan on sharing the vehicle with other customers.
- Vehicles are not equipped with car seats, wheelchairs, or attendants.
- There is no same-day or emergency service.
- You cannot choose your driver or vehicle, or specify the route taken by the vehicle.
Fares and Discounts
Fares for CCT Connect customers are different from fixed-route fares. The cost is $4.25 for each one-way trip. Exact fare is required.
Customers may pay cash or use a Trailpass. Reduced Fare Cards are not accepted.
ADA Paratransit Service customers may also register for a Personal Care Attendant to ride with them at no additional cost.
SEPTA does offer free or discounted rides for CCT Connect customers on its fixed-route services:
- With the exception of Regional Rail trips outside of Pennsylvania, senior citizens ride free on SEPTA with a SEPTA Key Senior Fare Card.
- Riders with disabilities may travel at a discounted rate on all SEPTA services with a SEPTA Key Reduced Fare ID or PA Disability Transit ID Card.
For details, see SEPTA’s fares information for details.
If you need financial assistance with fares, contact your social worker, supports coordinator, school, senior agency, or workshop to ask for referrals to programs that may help you.
