The smart choice for frequent riders
It's a "stored value" card (like an E-ZPass) with a tiny computer chip and mini-antenna inside.
FREEDOM can be purchased for $5 at any PATCO Vending Machine with cash, debit or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or American Express).
Seniors, Disabled persons and TranServe Transit Benefit customers must visit the FREEDOM Service Center to get their card.
Only Ride Occasionally?
These magnetic stripe tickets are valid for 3 days from date of purchase, and they can be purchased for cash from the automated vending machines.
After you’ve purchased your FREEDOM Card, become a power-user with this Optional Autoload Feature.
With FREEDOM Connected, you’ll never have to visit an Automated Vending Machine in the stations again!
Balance Protection (optional)
If you lose your FREEDOM card, simply call the FREEDOM Card Service Center (877-373-6777) and report the card missing. The service center can then disable that FREEDOM card and preserve the value that is stored on the card. You can obtain a new FREEDOM card which will include the previous balance. The Service Center will issue a new card for a $5 replacement fee.
PATCO now has a new Fare Product to accommodate our TRANServe Transit Benefit riders. Learn more by visiting the full ridepatco.org website.
