Ciresi’s Office Helps Renew SEPTA Senior Cards

ROYERSFORD PA – Area residents age 65 and older who need to renew their SEPTA Key Senior ID cards – which allow them to travel for free on SEPTA trains, buses, trolleys, and subways – can now complete that task in the district office of state Rep. Joe Ciresi, 301 N. Lewis Rd. Ste. 9C.

There’s no hurry, really. Ciresi explains that SEPTA has automatically extended the expiration date of existing cards – even if they were issued in 2020 or 2021 – into 2023. For example, cards dated to expire in April 2022 are good through April 2023. His staff, however, is anticipating high demand for renewals later this year and next. Why not beat the crush?, he suggests.

Current cardholders who want to renew can do so up to 2 months before their cards’ printed expiration date. Ciresi’s staff strongly encourages users to bring their expired or expiring cards with them when renewing.

Cards, including those being renewed, are mailed directly to recipients by SEPTA. They may take 2-4 weeks to arrive, the office noted.

Don’t have a card but want one? You can apply it at the Royersford office as well. It specifically serves constituents in the state’s 146th House District, which includes residents of Limerick, Lower Pottsgrove, and Perkiomen townships, and the boroughs of Pottstown, Royersford, and Trappe.
