You can no longer use any other form of senior ID like Medicare cards to ride free. To get a Senior Key card you can get one at either Septa Hq(1234 Market St) 8am-6pm or Suburban Station's Accessible Travel Ctr 8am-4pm. Those hours are probably weekdays and you will need to bring ID with you to apply. I think there may be same day service to get them now. I got mine mailed to me.
good to know. thanks

Not necessarily Philadelphia, but definitely Pennsylvania.

The free rides for seniors are funded by Pennsylvania Lottery revenues.

Yes, I read that you can get the Sr Key cards same day. My card has an expiration date. So, I will obviously have to renew it.
