The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) will no longer accept tokens as a form of fare payment beginning Jan. 1, 2024.
SEPTA discontinued the sale of tokens in 2018; however, the transit system has continued to accept tokens on buses, trolleys and via fare kiosks located at stations and bus loops.
Customers must use any remaining tokens before they expire at the end of the year. Tokens are valued at $2 each and are not redeemable for cash.
SEPTA began rolling out contactless payment methods in October.
SEPTA encourages customers to add the value of their tokens to a SEPTA Key card at a fare kiosk. Tokens can be used to load a pass to a Key card, or to add funds to the Travel Wallet feature.
Travel Wallet can be used to pay for trips on all modes, including buses, trolleys, the Market-Frankford Line, the Broad Street Line, the Norristown High Speed Line and Regional Rail. Customers who use Travel Wallet on SEPTA Key are also eligible for two free transfers.
