With the new electronic SEPTA Key being implemented, will Amtrak tickets still be honored for going to/from 30th Street to Suburban or Jefferson? Or will you have to buy a separate ticket? If it is still honored, where is there a place to prove it? (The paper timetable is gone, so the paragraph in there explaining this is gone as well.) I wouldn't expect the SEPTA employees standing at the barriers to all know about this and would like something to print out and have handy to show them if it's still valid.

When I was there in May, the employee at 30th Street let me by after looking at my Amtrak ticket.  This was right before the transition, though, so I'd also be curious how this works in practice now.


FWIW, this page still claims they are accepted: http://www.septa.org/fares/ticket/

Amtrak routes covered: Broadway Limited (Chicago to Lima), Cascades (SEA to VAC), CL (CHI to PGH), CZ (SAC to CHI), CONO, CS (SEA to SAC) EB (to SEA only), Lincoln Service, LSL (to BOS only), MO River Runner (and the Mules), NER (PHL to RTE), Pennsylvanian (PGH to PHL), Wolverine (CHI to NLS).  Thruways: GBB to SPI, STL to CDL.

Things are still being figured out with the Septa Key system. This is most likely one of them. The program hasn't even started it's pilot program yet. That starts next month. 

These posts are my views and opinions.
