Student Savings

Take NJ TRANSIT to school and save. There are several fare options offering students discounts on travel to college classes, parochial or public schools.

University Partnership - Student Pass

MyTix® Student Pass

Save 25% on an NJ TRANSIT monthly rail, bus, or light rail pass for the commute to class. Full-time college students attending participating University Partnership colleges or universities register through their college website.

Application for Student Tickets

Any full-time student attending a school on the NJ TRANSIT Accredited School list may purchase a 25% discounted rail pass at an NJ TRANSIT rail station ticket office by completing the Official Application for Student Tickets. This discount is only available for monthly rail passes, not bus or light rail. Students must have the application stamped or signed by their school to verify enrollment, then return the completed form to any NJ TRANSIT ticket office to purchase a monthly pass. 

An Accredited School must be an elementary, secondary, or post-secondary education provider. 
If you are interested in being placed on our Accredited School List, please contact us via the website and enter your comments/requests.

NJ TRANSIT reserves the right to approve, deny, review and/or remove schools on the Accredited School List at their discretion.

Internship and Student Pass

Interns attending an NJ TRANSIT accredited university or college in New Jersey, New York, or Pennsylvania may purchase a student monthly pass if the internship meets specific criteria.
