SEPTA Key

Tokens will be going away. On Monday, SEPTA will stop selling them at subway stations. Better get ready! http://planphilly.com/articles/2018/01/17/answers-for-all-your-septa-key-questions

    Answers for all your SEPTA Key questions
    On Monday, SEPTA will stop selling tokens at subway stations, taking a long-awaited leap forward in the neverending game of hopscotch that is the rollout of its new fare payment system, SEPTA Key. The end of station token sales represents a significant first step towards scrapping the fare coins entirely in 2019, a full five years after their original retirement date.

    Teens sickened by drug-laced cookies at Philly school
    Two teen girls were sent to the hospital after they were sickened by drug-laced cookies at a school in the Overbrook Park section of Philadelphia. Police don't think the girls had any idea what was in the cookies, and add that it's lucky more kids didn't eat them.
