The end of the SEPTA token is finally here
And just like that, they’re gone
Get ready to say goodbye to the end of an era next month, when SEPTA officially stops selling its—somewhat—beloved tokens everywhere.
The transportation authority announced Thursday that all token sales will finally cease on April 30th. Riders will still be able to use their tokens for the foreseeable future—lest your $2 go to waste—but won’t be able to purchase any new ones starting May 1, according to a statement from SEPTA.
Instead, regular riders will have to buy SEPTA Key cards, and SEPTA is urging riders to make the switch soon. The price for a new Key card will shoot up to $4.95 starting in May.
Thursday’s announcement marks the end to a long token phase-out process. In early 2017, SEPTA introduced Key cards, plastic cards that can be reloaded with money and can be used on all modes of transportation in the city. That began the process of ridding the city of its SEPTA tokens, which have been accepted at stations in the city since 1968.
Many vending machines that sold the tokens were removed from stations by December. Earlier this month, SEPTA announced that they were stopping token sales at a number of Regional Rail stations.
Now, SEPTA says they’ll continue to sell the tokens in bulk to social service agencies beyond the April 30 cutoff date, but that’s merely until those organizations can find a new way to provide SEPTA fares to their clients, according to the statement.
“The end of token sales represents a major step forward in the implementation of the SEPTA Key,” said General Manager of SEPTA Jeffrey Knueppel in the statement.

Toll Brothers tweaks facade in new proposal for Jewelers Row tower
Group proposes balconies, more glass on the front
After much back-and-forth between Toll Brothers and the Civic Design Review (CDR) over a controversial Jewelers Row tower, the firm has come back with a new design, which brings more glass to the brick-laden street.
The luxury home builders submitted the new design this week ahead of a CDR meeting next month. With the new plan, the home builders seek to iron out some of the issues the design committee had with a previous design, which the CDR deemed “undercooked” at a meeting last month.
The primary change comes with the front of the building, which faces Sansom Street. On the lower levels, where the home builders had previously proposed a brick facade, they now suggest glass instead, imitating the rest of the towering glass structure. They also added several balconies to the front of the tower.
“In response to feedback received from Civic Design Review and other stakeholders, Toll Brothers City Living has submitted a revised design for our 702 Sansom Street project,” wrote Timothy Spreitzer, spokesperson for Toll Brothers City Living.
The changes could be a nod to comments in the meeting last month, during which the CDR criticized the disconnect between the masonry and glass retail podium and the rest of the structure.
Apart from these changes, much of the new plan remains the same as the one considered last month—a 24-story glass tower with just over 135,500 square feet of space and 85 condo units, that sits at nearly 300 feet tall. Like before, the new plan still calls for the demolition of four buildings along Jewelers Row and one on 7th Street.
But both proposals differ greatly from the original, which was first proposed just over a year ago, and which called for 29 stories and a combined masonry-and-glass facade that stretched to the top of the entire structure.
Despite the year of tweaks and changes, the CDR and some residents have expressed concerns over Toll Brothers’ decision not to keep the original facades of the Jewelers Row buildings.
The new proposal is scheduled to go before the CDR on April 3.

Road closures and protest routes: What to know for Philly’s March for Our Lives
Over 3,000 people will march through Old City
“March for Our Lives,” a nation-wide gun control protest, will bring thousands of activists to streets around the country Saturday and, like many other cities, Philly is getting prepared.
The city announced road closures and parking restrictions in Old City, especially around Market Street and Columbus Boulevard, as well as a route for the demonstration in a statement Thursday. Some of the restrictions and closures are expected to last throughout the day Saturday, according to the statement.
The Philly protest is expected to start around 8 a.m. Saturday and last until 2 p.m., bringing over 3,000 people to the streets of Philly to demand, “a comprehensive and effective bill be immediately brought before Congress to address these gun issues,” according to the march’s website.
It’s just one of many similar “March for Our Lives” demonstrations happening around the country and the world, inspired by the DC march of the same name. The DC march was organized by the student survivors of the Parkland, Fla. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that killed 17 people—mostly students—at the school in February. Since the shooting, many of the surviving students have launched a campaign for comprehensive gun control reform.
If you’re planning on joining the march or traveling in the city Saturday, here’s what you should know.
The route of the march
Marchers will meet in Old City on the Corner of Market and 5th streets and will line up near the Independence Mall around 8 a.m. before marching down Market Street to South Front Street at 10 a.m. From there, they’ll walk to Dock Street and cross over to Columbus Boulevard before finishing the march around 11:30 a.m. at Lombard Circle.
Once the march is over, protesters will convene in a rally at Lombard Circle until around 2 p.m., according to the city.
How will transportation be affected?
Philadelphians can expect an all-day street closure at Columbus Boulevard, where a section of the road from Dock Street to Lombard Circle, will be shut down starting at 6 a.m. and lasting until 6 p.m. Local access to the I-95 on ramp and the east side of the boulevard will be maintained.
Central Old City will also see closures at 500 Market Street and at 5th Street from Market to Arch streets, starting at 8 a.m. and lasting until 11 a.m. Saturday.
SEPTA is detouring buses that pass through the area of the march, starting at 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. Saturday, and will post specific route changes on their website.
Parking will be banned starting at 5 a.m. until 6 p.m. on the east side of North 6th and 5th streets from Market to Arch, and on Market Street from 5th to Front streets. Parking along the sections of Front Street, Dock Street and Columbus Boulevard that are affected by the march will also be banned.

Lincoln Square starts pre-leasing apartments for summer move-in
Studios start at $1,290 per month
Construction of the Lincoln Square development in South Philly, which has been underway for a year, is making big strides forward and might even have an end in sight.
On Wednesday, it was announced that the 300,000-square-foot mixed-use development, which sits on a long-vacant corner of Broad and Washington, has started pre-leasing its 322 apartments, according to a statement from Neff Associates, a marketing group for the development. The building is scheduled to be ready for occupancy in late summer, the statement said.
On top of the planned move-in date and costs, the group also announced that Starbucks has signed on to be a retailer, joining Target, PetSmart and Sprint in the development’s 100,000 square feet of on-site retail space.
The news comes just over a year after construction began at the site in late January of 2017. The nine-story development, which was designed by BLT Architects, offers 50,000 feet of amenity space and a four-story garage, in addition to the apartments and first-floor retail space.
The apartments range from studios, which can be as small as 380 square feet and which start at $1,290 per month, to three-bedroom apartments, which can reach 1,427 feet and which start at $3,235 per month. A one-bedroom apartment in the development will cost a minimum of $1,715 per month, while a two-bedroom will cost at least $2,445 per month.
The development will offer a variety of perks in its apartments, including quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances. Some apartments will have a terrace or balcony as well, according to the statement.
