Payment for all modes of transit can be made with a SEPTA Key card. SEPTA Key is a reloadable, contactless chip card that offers a host of options for seamless travel on all SEPTA modes and the self-serve flexibility of loading/reloading SEPTA fares to match your travel needs. You can load money onto the Travel Wallet (to pay as you go) or you can load a daily/three day/weekly/monthly pass. You can get a SEPTA Key card at kiosks at the Airport or any Center City train station. Kiosks accept cash, credit, debit, tokens, Apple Pay, Google Pay, & Samsung Pay. Best part – you can reload your SEPTA Key online at SEPTAKey.org. You can also purchase a Quick Trip (single-ride ticket) at the kiosks.
If you don’t have time to stop by a kiosk – cash/credit cards are accepted on board. However, it will cost you more - $8 instead of $6.75.
The airport is also served by three SEPTA bus routes at Zone 1 of the Arrivals Road outside of baggage claim: Route 37, which goes from South Philadelphia to Chester, Pa.; Route 108, which goes from the airport to 69th Street Transportation Center; and Route 115, which goes from the airport to Delaware County Community College.
When paying with cash, the single-ride transit fare is $2.50 (exact change only). When paying with a SEPTA Key card, it is $2.
