SEPTA plans to increase its Travel Wallet fare to $2.50 (currently it's $2), while also proposing one free transfer to riders.
The Philadelphia Business Journal first reported on SEPTA's new fare plan.
Riders previously had to pay $1 for all transfers. Under a fare restructuring proposal released Wednesday, riders would pay $2.50 for one ride and a transfer, rather than $3.

“This change will allow riders to use the SEPTA system as a true network — encouraging those who currently stay on a bus longer to avoid paying a transfer fee to use connections that will speed-up their trips,” SEPTA said in a statement.
NBC10's partners at the Philadelphia Business Journal share takeaways on SEPTA's new transfer fare plan, which must still be approved by the transit agency's board.
