Leslie Hickman, SEPTA Chief Officer, Revenue Operations Division, discussed the transportation service which covers more than Southeastern PA!  SEPTA reaches three states and five counties with buses, light rail, trolleys, regional rail,  and CCT Connect.  They offer transportation services to commuters, students, tourists and the area’s aged and disabled 365 days a year.  She discussed the system, its routes and planned extensions, its online and kiosk services in English and Spanish  – in multiple languages by APP – and the economic impact of mass transportation, as an employer, as a people mover connecting workers and jobs, and as a vital requirement for any business looking to open in Philly.

Ms Hickman suggests visiting SEPTA –  online and by its free app – for trip planning, route schedules and delays and for managing your ‘travel wallet’ – the new way to travel is by the SEPTA ‘KEY,’ a reloadable, reusable and replaceable card you buy at any of 300 retailers in the area, then register to reload or replace if lost.  The card replaces tokens, the sale of which is coming to an end.  With the Key card you can also receive discounts or ‘perks’ at area businesses.  Learn more about the SEPTA KEY at
