Group wants gender stickers removed from SEPTA passes

    Philly RAGE is hoping to collect 3,000 signatures in opposition to SEPTA’s gender stickers.

    The Philly Riders Against Gender Exclusion is a grassroots transgender organization that wants to see the neon-colored ‘M’ and ‘F’ stickers go.

    But SEPTA spokesman Richard Maloney tells KYW the stickers will be a thing of the past soon enough when the authority rolls out its new smart fare system.

    RAGE says doing away with the stickers will make it easier on riders who don’t necessarily identify with or look like a particular gender.
