Residents can't apply independently for Zero Fare. Instead, participants will be randomly selected to participate or enrolled through select community-based organizations. Eligibility is based on:
All participants will receive a card that covers all SEPTA rides for one year. At the end of the first year, participants will be contacted regarding options for the second year of the program.
About 90% of participants will be randomly chosen and automatically enrolled. These participants will receive a pre-activated Zero Fare Key card in the mail.
Enrollment through community organizations
The remaining 10% of participants will be enrolled through designated community-based organizations. These participants will receive their Zero Fare Key card from the organization they visited.
