SEPTA SENIOR CITIZEN ID CARDS, SCHEDULES RETURN TO 69TH STREET TERMINAL

 SEPTA SENIOR CITIZEN ID CARDS, SCHEDULES
 RETURN TO 69TH STREET TERMINAL
 PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Even though the SEPTA Information Office in 69th Street Terminal remains closed because of the authority's severe cost reduction program, a new way has been found to issue senior citizen identification cards in the terminal once again, starting Monday, Sept. 14, SEPTA said today.
 Mondays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., persons ages 65 and older can get their Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Senior Citizen Identification Cards by stopping at the SEPTA Sales Office -- where tokens and passes are sold -- instead of at the former information office. In addition, everyone will be able to pick up printed timetables from a newly installed rack in front of the sales office.
 The return of these services to 69th Street Terminal was made possible through the cooperative efforts of three separate SEPTA departments, according to Howard Simpson, SEPTA chief customer service supervisor. Simpson said, "The efforts of individuals in the Sales Department, the Suburban Transit Division and Customer Service have allowed the return of these services for senior citizens who live in Delaware County or have easy access to the Terminal."
 Simpson reported that Tom Kelly, SEPTA supervisor of administration/ sales, agreed to have his personnel process the senior citizen identification card requests and Tom Cain, assistant general manager- suburban operations, volunteered his people to keep the timetable rack stocked.
 "Many seniors have voiced their concerns to the Customer Service Department," Simpson said, "and I'm really glad we have been able to respond to them in a positive way."
 Anyone wishing to acquire a senior citizens identification card at the Terminal must offer appropriate identification (a drivers license, birth certificate or baptismal certificate) to an agent at the sales office. Senior citizen identification cards are also available at the SEPTA offices at 2nd Street and Wyoming Avenue and the SEPTA Customer Service Office at 841 Chestnut St., Philadelphia.
