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.

What's a Plan?

A city plan uses community input, research, and surveying, to guide how to improve housing, neighborhoods, jobs, shopping options, transportation, and public space.

Plans also identify how to turn the ideas in the plan into action. Once completed, City Planning works with other city departments, partners, and community groups to make the plan happen.

Learn more about the Philadelphia2035 plan and the West District.

What's Next?

The final version of the plan will be presented for adoption at a City Planning Commission meeting. Open to the public!

Once the plan is adopted by the City Planning Commission, our staff will start working on making it happen, in partnership with community organizations, West District residents, fellow City departments, and other partners.

    City of Philadelphia Municipal Offices to Close Friday, January 5 | Department of Streets
    PHILADELPHIA - Because of extreme temperatures and the threat of hazardous travel conditions, all City of Philadelphia government offices will be closed tomorrow, Friday, January 5, 2018. "The decision to close is a difficult one, but we believe that the frigid temperatures will result in icy roadways in the morning that will be resistant to our salting efforts," said Managing Director Mike DiBerardinis.
