HARRISBURG – To ensure seniors can ride free on all SEPTA transit services, Rep. Steve Barrar (R-Chester/Delaware) is offering people 65 and older the opportunity to get a free SEPTA Key Senior ID card without traveling into Philadelphia. The event will be held on Wednesday, May 31, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Upper Chichester Library, 3374 Chichester Ave., No. 19, Upper Chichester
Pennsylvania residents, age 65 and older, who have a form of identification acceptable to apply for the Senior Ride ID are eligible to participate in SEPTA’s Seniors Ride Free Program.
“With just a quick trip to my office, seniors will be able to prepare themselves to use SEPTA’s new, modern fare payment and collection system. This is an easy way for seniors to be sure they can continue to conveniently ride free,” Barrar said.
While Pennsylvania seniors who possess a valid (unexpired) driver’s license or state-issued ID are automatically eligible to participate in the program, people who do not want to use either form of identification can register and have their picture taken for the SEPTA Key Senior ID card. The SEPTA Key cards will be mailed at a later date.
Anyone who wishes to participate is asked to schedule an appointment by calling Barrar’s district office at (610) 358-5925 to RSVP.
Interested residents who cannot attend the event are asked to schedule an appointment with Barrar’s staff to process the application and submit it to SEPTA.
