Former Philadelphian here. (Coming home for a visit soon and just thrilled to have to figure out a new Septa pass system.) Atlanta has same issue with their new pay app. It doesn't integrate with their monthly fare card. Only works for single tickets -- meaning tourists. My guess is they can't integrate it with legacy readers and or previous poster's suggestion that the contractor wants to control the app.

Makes sense. Just pointless to not allow money to be taken from your keycard for these tickets.

Also you can only use the app at the handicap entrances as of now since they are the only ones that could read it, which can be an inconvenience, and crowd an entrance that should be kept clear.
