General Information on Commuter Benefits SEPTA Employer Commuter Discount Program

Penn has negotiated an agreement with the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) to provide two types of commuter passes:

  • TransPasses, for travel within the City of Philadelphia, and
  • TrailPasses, for regional rail.  

Full-time, benefits-eligible faculty and staff may purchase monthly passes at a 10% discount through payroll deduction. The five-percent discount provided by SEPTA is matched by Penn's five-percent subsidy. 10-trip tickets are also available for purchase at a 5% Penn discount. Up to $265 of your monthly payroll deduction can be paid for through pre-tax deductions.
