On Tuesday, the Philadelphia-area transit agency began selling Three-Day Convenience Passes to SEPTA Key Card users.
The $18 Travel Wallet passes can be used for up to 24 trips over a 72-hour period on any SEPTA bus, subway or trolley lines. One ride normally costs $2 with a SEPTA Key Card.
“The Convenience Pass is ideal for individuals who travel on SEPTA Transit routes less than five days a week and visitors and tourists enjoying a multiple day stay in Philadelphia,” SEPTA said on its website.
The three-day passes can’t be used on Regional Rail or Route 78, SEPTA said. The pass is activated upon the first trip.
SEPTA is also selling a One-Day Convenience Pass for up to eight trips for $9.
