Toepel to Help Local Seniors with SEPTA Key Card Applications
HARLEYSVILLE – To ensure seniors can ride free on all SEPTA transit services, Rep. Marcy Toepel (R- Montgomery) is offering people 65 and older the opportunity to get a free SEPTA Key Senior ID card on Thursday, Oct. 4, from 9-11 a.m. at the Lower Salford Township Municipal Building, 379 Main St., Harleysville.

“All seniors of the 147th District who would like help filling out their applications or taking acceptable pictures for a SEPTA Key Card are invited to either clinic, which are convenient opportunities to get the card without traveling to Philadelphia,” Toepel said.

The second SEPTA Key Card clinic will be held at the same location on Thursday, Oct. 18, from 2-4 p.m.

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 Toepel’s district office at (610) 323-3299 with questions.
