Seniors age 65 and over can now ride regional SEPTA trains free for trips within the state of Pennsylvania. That’s not as big a cut as it might seem: Previously, seniors paid only $1 for the same rides. As part of the new deal, seniors pay half fare on trains that extend into New Jersey or Delaware. Local citizens should get a new SEPTA photo ID Key Card; visitors need only show a photo ID such as a driver’s license or passport. And, of course, the “Seniors ride free” policies continues for city transit systems in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. More information
