State Rep. Pamela A. DeLissio, (D-Montgomery/Phila.), will host a free SEPTA Key Senior Photo ID Card event to help seniors in the 194th Legislative District obtain their ID card to use for SEPTA travel.
The event will take place from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 28 at DeLissio’s district office, 6511 Ridge Ave.
This event is in addition to the weekly SEPTA photo appointments that the office has been hosting since August 2016.
This is by appointment only for residents of the 194th who are 65 or older and have yet to get their SEPTA Key ID photo taken. Those constituents can call the district office at 215-482-8726.
In collaboration with SEPTA, many legislators’ district offices are assisting with the rollout of the SEPTA Key Senior ID Cards by taking photos and sending the information to SEPTA. SEPTA processes the ID cards and then mails the card directly to residents a few weeks later.
“My staff is known for their fun and painless photo ops, as we have been providing this constituent service to ensure a smooth and efficient experience,” DeLissio said. “Our office has taken well over 2,400 photos so far, and we look forward to many more!”
To participate, seniors must bring at least one appropriate form of identification including, but not limited to: a birth certificate, Pennsylvania driver’s license, passport, or a statement of age verification from the U.S. Social Security Administration.
