SEPTA: No more on board fare collection at Center City Rail stations

You're ride home may be a little different starting August first if you use SEPTA.

Starting August 1 st , SEPTA Regional Rail lines will no longer collect fares on board at Center City Regional Rail Stations between the hours of 3:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

All fares will instead be collected or validated before customers go to the platform area at Temple, Jefferson, Suburban, 30 th Street, and University City Regional Rail stations.

Fare Collection personnel will be stationed by each stairway. Once the fare has been validated or collected, customers will be able to proceed directly to the train platform and all stairways will be open.

Customers with cash must purchase a ticket at the Station Ticket Office before going to the stairway fare line.
