West Chester, Pa (March 22, 2022) – Chester County senior citizens can now renew their SEPTA Key Senior ID Cards at state Senator Carolyn Comitta’s West Chester District Office.

While SEPTA has extended all cards through the year, going forward the new option to renew locally will provide an added convenience for the many seniors who rely on the free and reduced fare program. Previously, seniors had to travel to the SEPTA Headquarters in Philadelphia to renew their cards, which are valid for four years.

“We welcome this new and easier way for seniors to renew their SEPTA Key Senior ID Cards at my district office and other state legislative offices in our region,” Comitta said. “It just makes sense that seniors can renew their cards right here – the same place where many applied to begin with. I encourage all seniors to take advantage of the SEPTA Key senior fare program as a valuable and no-cost option to travel with ease.”

The cards enable seniors, aged 65 years and older to ride free at all times on all Transit Routes (Bus, Trolley, Trackless Trolley, Broad Street/Broad Ridge Spur Line, Market Frankford Line/Norristown High Speed Line) and on Regional Rail for travel to/from stations located in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. They also allow seniors to pay a discounted fare rate for travel to/from New Jersey and Delaware.

Earlier this year, SEPTA extended the expiration dates for Senior Key ID Cards with 2020, 2021 and 2022 expiration dates. Cards with printed expiration dates of 2020, 2021 and 2022 will remain effective through the end of the month printed on the card in 2023.

Seniors who are still interested in renewing their cards or applying for cards for the first time are highly encouraged to schedule an appointment at Senator Comitta’s West Chester District Office, 17 E. Gay Street, Suite 301, by calling (610) 692-2112 or emailing senatorcomitta@pasenate.com

Renewal applicants should bring in their expired SEPTA Key card and state-issued ID.

First-time applicants must provide their driver’s license or state-issued ID.

Please know that renewals processed at legislative offices will take two weeks for processing.  Applicants will receive the new card in the mail. If you wish for a new card to be issued same-day, you must schedule an appointment to renew at SEPTA Headquarters (1234 Market St., Philadelphia).

If your SEPTA Key Senior Card was lost or stolen, you must immediately call the Key Customer Call Center at 855-567-3782 (this is not SEPTA Customer Service). For more information about the SEPTA Key card program, visit www.septa.org.
