SEPTA recently released a Fare Restructuring Plan that includes bold steps in the right direction. This includes eliminating the $1 Transfer Penalty for the vast majority of riders and a significant reduction in child fares. This is a watershed moment that promises more affordable, equitable, and seamless journeys for thousands of riders.
While these changes are significant, 5th Square will continue to push for the best possible fare policy for riders in the Philadelphia region in the coming weeks. This includes increasing the number of free transfers given on a journey to two or more, eliminating all fares and transfers for children 12 and under, and universal free student passes for all public school students 12 and above.
5th Square will be proposing our own Fare Vision out in front of SEPTA headquarters at 1234 Market Street right before their March Board Meeting.
