SEPTA is phasing out the weekly Transpass and replacing it with a SEPTA Student Fare Card for all eligible students.
What is it?
It is a reusable chipped card used by students to board a SEPTA trolley, bus, or subway. Unlike the disposable weekly Transpass, students will be able to use the SEPTA Student Fare Card for the entire school year.
If a SEPTA Student Fare Card is lost, stolen, or damaged the student will reach out to their school to request a replacement.
How will my student get one?
On the first day of school, all forms of transportation on SEPTA including buses, trains and subways will be free to students so they can get to school safely on their first day Tuesday August 31.
Once at school, the new Fare Cards will be distributed to students in the same manner they received their transpasses.
