West Chester, Pa (March 2, 2023) – Seniors 65 and older will have the opportunity to apply for or renew their free SEPTA Senior Key Card at the Easttown Library on Wednesday, March 8th from noon to 5 p.m., thanks to an event hosted by state Senator Carolyn Comitta and state Rep. Melissa Shusterman.
“From everyday travel, to visiting family and friends, or enjoying a trip to the city, the SEPTA Senior Key Card helps older residents get to where they need to go,” Comitta said. “I encourage all area seniors to stop by our Senior Fare Card event so they can enjoy this great service.”
The SEPTA Senior Key card is available to all seniors aged 65 and older. With the card, seniors can ride all SEPTA buses, trolleys, subways, and regional rail lines for free within Pennsylvania. Trains to and from New Jersey and Delaware using the senior card are charged at half fare.
“I’m very excited to hold this joint event with Sen. Comitta,” Shusterman said. “SEPTA Key Cards are a fantastic benefit for our seniors and it’s understandable why they are so popular. Our region has a wealth of historical and cultural offerings and SEPTA passes make visiting these places more convenient. These cards can also be a lifeline enabling seniors to access their families, doctors, and even part-time jobs.”
To apply, seniors must bring a form of identification that verifies their age. This includes a driver’s license, photo identification card, birth certificate, passport, or Social Security statement of age.
Easttown Library is located at 720 First Avenue in Berwyn.
