SEPTA announced Thursday afternoon the rollout of a fare hike that will start in July.

Cash trips on buses, subways and trolleys will go from $2.00 to $2.25.

Sometime next year, that price will go up another quarter.

Single trip tokens will cost $1.80.

Rates for weekly and monthly TransPasses are also going up.

Revisions include:

  • Freezing CCT Paratransit fares at the current level of $4, rather than an increase to $4.50;
  • Lowering increases to weekly and monthly TransPasses, which will go from $22 to $24, and $83 to $91, respectively;
  • Raising ride limits on weekly and monthly passes to 56 and 240, respectively;
  • Continuing to accept TransPasses on the Airport Regional Rail Line to accommodate Philadelphia International Airport employees until the NPT system is in place on Regional Rail;
  • Charging the standard base fare on portions of bus routes 124 and 125 that provide local service between Gulph Mills and Chesterbrook, and inbound from the Wissahickon Transportation Center.
