The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) continues to roll out its "Key" card fare payment system.

Beginning April 17, riders on the SEPTA Airport Regional Rail Line will be able to purchase "Quick Trips" at fare kiosks located at each terminal stop for travel between the Philadelphia International Airport and anywhere on the rail system.

The Key card system allows riders to load value online, over the phone and at kiosks. Passengers also can have the cards automatically reloaded from their bank accounts.

Also: Beginning this week, visitors traveling from the airport have the option to pay with a mobile ticket through a pilot partnership with Mozio, an airport ground transportation search engine.

During the six-month pilot, SEPTA will test the potential of growing a new business and leisure travel market by highlighting the airport line as a ground transportation option when visitors to Philadelphia book their flights and hotels.
