Who is eligible to purchase an All Access College Transit Pass?
- 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). Students not enrolled and not taking classes during the month of purchase are not eligible to purchase a pass for that month. During this time, a monthly pass at the $72 regular price can be purchased.
- For technical or vocational schools, students must be enrolled at least half-time at the time of purchase to be eligible.
- Students not taking classes during a month are not eligible to purchase a pass during this period, even though they may be enrolled in work-study or working on campus.
- Students should be prepared to 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. 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 an MTA All Access College Transit pass.
- A student ID must be available for inspection whenever riding MTA services.
