NJ Transit Welcomes Students Back to Campus with Promotional Discount
This year, NJ TRANSIT will also welcome back students with a unique promotion for the Fall 2021 semester: Buy 3 Months, Get 1 Month Free. To qualify, a student at a partner college or university must buy a student monthly pass via the NJ TRANSIT mobile app for three consecutive months: September, October and November of 2021.
For a student to be eligible, a school must offer Student Pass registration via their website and verify a student’s eligibility each semester. Once verified, Student Pass will appear each month as a ticket option during NJ TRANSIT’s usual monthly pass purchase period, beginning at the 19th of the preceding month through the 10th of the travel month.
After the third qualifying purchase, a monthly pass good for the month of December 2021 will appear during the December monthly pass purchase window. The free month’s pass will be equal to the lowest-priced purchase made in the previous three months and is valid for December 2021 use only. The free December 2021 pass is non-refundable and non-transferrable.
Through this promotion, students can save more than 60 percent off transportation to campus during the Fall 2021 semester (September – December) when compared to purchasing one-way transportation.
NJ TRANSIT also offers other flexible options for college students traveling to campus:
- FLEXPASS – College students needing more flexibility in their commute may choose FLEXPASS as their best option. FLEXPASS offers customers 20 one-way trips at a 20 percent discount off full-fare tickets. Learn more at njtransit.com/flexpass.
- Student Tickets – College students attending NJ TRANSIT-accredited post-secondary schools, colleges and universities can complete an application to purchase a rail monthly pass at a 25-percent discount from rail ticket offices. Applications must be verified by the respective school/college. This offer is available only for a rail pass.
Get On Board With A 25% Discount For NJ TRANSIT Mobile Student Monthly Passes
Full-time undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to purchase a rail, bus, or light rail mobile student monthly pass at 25% off the regular monthly pass price, when they enroll online through NJ TRANSIT’s Mobile Student program.
Note for graduate students: The online application is set up primarily for undergraduate students. Graduate students are encouraged to go to a NJ TRANSIT station and request a paper application if unable to submit an application online.
