The Latest at Suburban Station

There has been a lot happening at Suburban Station so far this year. You’ve probably seen SEPTA hard at work installing Key Card fare gates at Suburban Station. Now that SEPTA has begun to phase out token sales they are encouraging riders to switch to SEPTA Key, the latest step in the fare modernization project. These fare gates will make the use of the Septa Key card easy and smooth at Suburban Station and other stations around town. If you haven’t made the switch to the Key Card, give it a try. You’ll be happy you did. Read more about it here.  And here!


When Faber newsstands closed, commuters asked where they could buy their daily paper in the station. Still, right here! We contacted The Inquirer and encouraged them to send a newspaper hawker to the station. Look for him in the Regional Rail portion of the Station, in front of Milkhouse from 7:00am to 10:00am weekdays.


Hub of Hope opened at the end of January. Hub of Hope is an 11,000 square foot facility aimed at providing social services that can help people transition out of homelessness, plus other services like laundry, showers and referrals to other agencies. The facility is operated by Project Home.


Last but never least, we just launched a Station Shops at Suburban website. Visit for up to date operating hours, a complete list of stores, leasing opportunities, a map and more.
