Sign the Petition to Support Free Transfers

SEPTA riders have been through a lot this year, and just last week, SEPTA announced they're raising fares from $1.80 to 2.00, and from $2.25 to $2.50 for single rides.

It's time for SEPTA to give riders a break, and stop charging an extra $1 penalty to transfer between buses, subways, and trolleys.

When SEPTA charges an extra $1.00 for transfers, that's an unfair penalty for everyone whose home isn’t on the exact transit line as their job, family, school, grocery store, or place of worship. And it costs SEPTA more to run the system this way!

One SEPTA fare should cover your whole trip. With free transfers, every SEPTA rider would have the opportunity to access the whole city, on equal footing with every other rider. To learn more about why SEPTA should end the transfer penalty, visit our Action page

SEPTA needs to hear from YOU! 

Sign the petition and then RSVP for SEPTA's April 24th budget hearing where we'll be asking them to end the $1 the transfer penalty.

    I used to live in Portland, where all transit tickets were good on any bus, train, streetcar, etc for two and half hours after their purchase, regardless of the number of transfers needed. This is a much better system and is a good model for SEPTA to look into.

    I’ve been a SEPTA rider since birth.

    Drop the $1 transfer and you’ll see ridership grow.

    If you’re going to charge these ridiculous fares, then get back involved with your city tech programs and get our youth involved in workforce development.. even then, how does uber manage to get me across the city for 3.70, and you all have a bus that carries over 40 people and can’t do cheaper.. seems mismanaged.
