If you want to install and use the SEPTA app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use this app for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type SEPTA in the search bar and press Search. Click on SEPTA application icon. A window of SEPTA on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use this app for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • Improved but still needs work

    By Someone in Philly
    The app for the most part is great but for the bus route 40, most of the tome the buses are no where near the time it says it should be like in the morning. There is 3 buses that are either or late and never on time. I think that the app should tell you if the bus is early or not and the late time needs to be more accurate. Then also the next time arrival needs to be improved because when a bus is running late, it often doesn’t come back on the list after its scheduled time and you can’t track it no more. The last thing that needs to be improved is when you pick the stops. The stops take a long time time to load and typing in the stops name, most of the time doesn’t work which didn’t start happening until the last few updates.
  • key card

    By maltngga
    i think an addition should b added to the app. Meaning add it to the wallet setting. Reason for this is that im an Iphone user. If i place my phone by the keycard reader my wallet option appears. I think it would b more affective in a positive aspect. For those who might lose their card, outside of having to pay extra and go through relacing it last minute. This app can be utilized more and have more of an impact for its riders. It could assist tourist with less confussion. Regional Rail fares could be added as well. Sinces phones are in every hand then ths will assist with the commute
  • System Status is NOT working properly

    By May1209
    I put regional rail Trenton line as a favorite. I tapped "my favorite," then the line has the service advisories mark⚠️ I tapped the mark⚠️ and next it says "No Service Advisories." A week has passed, it still shows the same mark and "No Service Advisories" for Trenton line. But there's a little change. When I tapped the mark several times, it finally showed "Service Advisories" and "DETOUR"😨 Detour for the regional rail Trenton line is from blah blah street & blah blah avenue, and the route for now is turning left on blah blah street and turning right on blah blah avenue, then going back to the normal route😨 Though the mark is shown for the line, advisories and detour are all about my other favorite bus routes. It is stressful because I need to check brand new status not to be late for meetings, appointment, etc.
  • Better but only shows point to point

    By drpuma
    I am a frequent SEPTA user for my daily commute. The updates to the app are definitely prettier. I like that favorites are easy to access and real-time. However, as someone who lives in the city I often want to compare arrival or departure times at the different stations. It’s frustrating that the new app ONLY shows point-to-point. There is no way to view a whole timetable. So, if I want to compare when a train arrives at Jefferson and Suburban, I have to look them both up individually. There is no way to see them side by side. This was possible in the old app, and is not an improvement.
