Paper transfers are no more on SEPTA's subways, buses and trolleys.

The transit agency stopped selling the transfers at the end of business Tuesday.

Transfers purchased from ticket machines at PATCO High Speed Line stations, however, will still be accepted until Sept. 1 while preparations to issue a compatible Freedom Card, called Freedom Share, are under way.

Beginning Wednesday, SEPTA riders will need a SEPTA Key card with money loaded on it to make transfers. The transfers will cost $1, or 50 cents for eligible customers with SEPTA Key Reduced Fare cards.

The disappearance of paper transfers follows the phase-out of tokens as SEPTA switches to an electronic collection system based on the Key card.

SEPTA Key cards can be purchased and have funds added to them at fare kiosks, which are located at all Market-Frankford and Broad Street Line stations, SEPTA Transit Sales Offices, and a growing list of external sales locations.
