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.

Schools use an online portal to place orders and manage the program. 


We've put together some frequently asked questions about the Semester Pass Program.
