Key 2.0 Vision and System Modernization —
Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA)
The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) operates more than 2,800 vehicles including bus, light rail, commuter rail and subway, with over 225 million annual trips. SEPTA hired Clevor Consulting Group (CCG) to guide the agency through the planning and procurement to replace the Key 1.0 electronic fare collection system, first launched in 2016. The purpose of this procurement, internally known as Key 2.0, is to improve the system functionality delivered to both customers and agency stakeholders, while also addressing some end-of-life components. CCG developed a comprehensive Concept of Operations (ConOps) for SEPTA. This document outlined a high-level technology, procurement, and operations strategy. Thereafter, CCG led the development of the technical requirements and RFP to replace the existing system and streamline integrations. CCG worked side-by-side with SEPTA’s technical, procurement and legal staff. Furthermore, CCG will support the agency in developing technical requirements and assembling procurement packages for other technology systems.
