SEPTA Weekend Family Pass

There are a lot of things going on downtown over the holidays, the Wannamaker light show, Dickens village, the Comcast lobby, Reading terminal marker, etc. Something you may not know -- you can use your monthly SEPTA train pass to buy a weekend family pass. It is good for up to 5 people (2 adults, 3 kids, 1 adult 4 kids, etc) and is ten dollars and some change. That is not bad -- it's half off the usual price of a weekend family pass. Not all of the ticket agents know about it so you might have to ask them to check with a supervisor or more experienced agent (they love it when you do this!). I don't know all the ins and outs of the process, whether it has to be a monthly pass, if it is only good for downtown, etc. but it might be worth asking some questions.

Now you might be asking if all the children who went downtown on my family pass were indeed my own. Or could it have something to do with going into the city with a group that one of my children is a member of, that perhaps one of the other group leaders might also have gotten a weekend family pass for half price with their monthly trail pass. On this question I will remain silent and can offer no information regarding SEPTA's policy in this regard.
