Colleges and Universities: Help Your Students Save

More from Bulk Orders

View all of the MBTA's bulk purchase programs

The T is working with colleges and universities to provide 11% discounts on MBTA passes for students through the Semester Pass Program. Depending on the type purchased, prepaid passes offer unlimited travel by bus, subway, Commuter Rail, and/or ferry for the whole semester. Colleges and universities with full-time course loads, and that are near MBTA transit lines, can offer the program.


Only school administrators can sign up for the program. Students and parents, check with your school to see if it participates.

Administrators, you’ll use an online portal to sign up, place orders, and manage the program.
