More changes are coming for commuters who take SEPTA's Regional Rail.
Starting Monday, Aug. 1, travelers departing five Center City stations will have to buy their passes before boarding, meaning they won't be able to pay in cash on the train.
The new requirement, however, only applies during the evening rush hours of 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The tweak is for passengers getting on at the following stations: Temple University, Jefferson, Suburban, 30th Street and University City.

SEPTA said fare collection personnel will be positioned at each stairway of those stations when the change goes into effect.
