City of Philadelphia employees are the latest to join free SEPTA Key program

The city of Philadelphia is making a major transit benefit free for employees.

Beginning Sept. 1, the city will offer a free SEPTA Keycard to employees who want to come to work via mass transit. Mayor Jim Kenney said it’s part of the city’s efforts to be more environmentally friendly.

“Over the next two years, we will commit $62 million to a zero fare transit program that will serve at least 25,000 residents near or below the poverty level and another $9 million to join other large employers in the region participating in the SEPTA Key Advantage program to provide free transit benefits for eligible City of Philadelphia employees,” Kenney said.
