PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — SEPTA is proposing fare restructuring that could help some riders, while putting the pinch on others. The transit agency unveiled a new fare plan on Wednesday.
- The discounted rate for riders with disabilities will remain the same.
- The $2.50 cash base fare will remain unchanged.
- Customers will be allowed one free transfer to better serve low-income communities and promote efficient travel.
- The currently discounted travel wallet fare will increase from $2 to $2.50 on transit.
- Children age 5 to 11 will be able to ride for $1 on transit and regional rail. Right now they pay full price on transit, half on regional rail.
- SEPTA is also introducing a three-day pass good for 72 hours after its first use.
