Passes are only sold on-site at paticipating schools. Passes are not sold at the MTA Transit Store or MTA pass sales locations. Note the MTA All Access College Transit Pass is a monthly pass. There are no daily discount fares for college students.
Students must be taking a minimum of six credit or non-credit hours per week at the time of purchase to be eligible (three hours per week during summer months and winter inter-session). If a student is not enrolled and not taking classes during the month of purchase then they are not eligible to purchase a pass for that particular month. During this time, a monthly pass at the $64 regular price can be purchased.
For technical or vocational schools, a student must be enrolled in a minimum of half-time (part-time) status at the time of purchase to be eligible.
Students not taking classes during a month, but enrolled in work-study or on-campus employment are not eligible to purchase a pass during this period. Remember, you must be enrolled in the required number of weekly class hours during the month in which the pass is to be used.
Students MUST show a valid student ID and class schedule when purchasing a pass. Your school will require these items before a pass is issued, as your school is required to check current student status, as per the guidelines of this program. A student may only purchase a pass for him or herself. Passes cannot be purchased for family, friends, or other students.
Faculty, school staff, or school administration are not eligible to purchase a $39 College pass.
A student ID must be shown at all times when riding MTA services, as MTA operators, station attendants, or MTA Police will request them.
