SEPTA Transfer Price Increase At NJ PATCO Stations

On Thursday, July 1, 2010 the cost of a round-trip SEPTA transfer at New Jersey PATCO stations is going up 20 cents to $2.60.  The special round-trip PATCO/SEPTA transfer cost is increasing because of the fare hike implemented by SEPTA.  The cost of a round-trip SEPTA transfer at New Jersey PATCO stations has been $2.40 since June of 2008.  PATCO customers may use cash or their FREEDOM card to purchase a SEPTA transfer.  The transfer is dispensed as two separate tickets.  One is valid for 1 hour from the time of purchase and is to be used on any of the specified lines from a point connecting with PATCO.  The second ticket is valid for 24 hours from the time of purchase and is to be used on any of the specified lines to return to PATCO.

The transfers may be purchased from vending machines in PATCO New Jersey stations.  SEPTA accepts this transfer from an interchange point with PATCO on:
