That new experience—with its inherent convenience and operational efficiencies—is now a part of Philadelphia’s transit system. Bus, trolley, subway, regional rail, paratransit vehicles and parking facilities are easier to pay for and use than ever before.
Travelers can use SEPTA-issued smart cards, which can be loaded and reloaded at retail locations, or even use their own contactless bank cards or NFC-enabled smartphones.
Call it transportation transformation, set to speed access to all SEPTA services while reducing operating and maintenance costs. And because it’s based on open standards and non-proprietary technologies, it can be easily updated as the industry changes.
