The cost of public transportation in Southeastern Pennsylvania just became slightly more expensive today. Today, SEPTA's first fare increase in three years went into effect, raising the cost of tokens, Regional Rail travel, TransPasses and cash fares.
Tokens, which were previously $1.55, now cost $1.80. Cash fares also increased by a quarter, moving from $2 to $2.25. Regional Rail increases will range from 25 cents to $2, but the cost of a transfer will stay put at $1. More fare increases will be introduced next year, along with the New Payment Technology plan, which will give commuters the option to pay for travel using various methods.
