Riders who use SEPTA’s Regional Rail will no longer be able to purchase paper tickets for certain trips starting October 2, 2020.

In an announcement Wednesday, SEPTA stated this includes sales of single trip and 10-trip ticket strips. Tickets purchased before the end date will be accepted through their valid date.

Instead, the transportation authority is pushing customers to use the Key Card. SEPTA touts it as the “future of fare payment.”

Funds on the Travel Wallet do not expire and the system offers the lowest prices available.

The regional rail is a series of commuter trains including the Trenton and West Trenton Lines. Riders looking for more information can visit SEPTA.org/key.
