UPPER CHICHESTER – To ensure seniors can ride free on all SEPTA transit services, Rep. Steve Barrar (R-Chester/Delaware) is offering people age 65 and older the opportunity to get a free SEPTA Key Senior ID card on Wednesday, March 27, from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at the Upper Chichester Library, 3374 Chichester Ave., No. 19, Upper Chichester.
“Thanks to the library for partnering with me to provide this important service to residents of the 160th District, which will save them a drive to Philadelphia as they apply for the Key card,” Barrar said. “This is a great benefit that SEPTA is offering to seniors, and I encourage them to take advantage of it.”
The Key card enables seniors to ride free on all transit routes (bus, trolley, trackless trolley, Broad Street/Broad Ridge Spur Line, Market Frankford Line/Norristown High Speed Line). Earlier this month, SEPTA eliminated the $1 Regional Rail fare for travel within Pennsylvania.
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.
Residents are encouraged to call Barrar’s district office at 610-358-5925 with questions.
