NJ Transit student discount program expands to include part-time students

Starting in February, the Popular “Buy 3 Months, Get 1 Month Free” Student Pass Promotion Welcomes Full-Time and Eligible Part-Time Students Back for Spring 2023 Semester

NEW JERSEY – NJ TRANSIT is expanding its Student Pass fare option in a pilot program to include eligible part-time students.

For the first time, beginning with February passes, in addition to full-time students, part-time degree-seeking students taking at least two courses will also be eligible for the Student Pass fare, which provides a 25-percent discount off the already discounted monthly pass at participating regional colleges and universities when purchased on the NJ TRANSIT mobile app.

In addition, all students utilizing the Student Pass can save big during the spring semester thanks to the return of the “Buy 3 Months, Get 1 Month Free” Student Pass promotion. This cost-saving program is back by popular demand beginning with February passes for college students traveling to and from campuses for the Spring semester.

“The services NJ TRANSIT provides have proven to be essential to a multitude of college students across the state, so I am pleased we are able to offer more students the Student Pass fare,” said New Jersey Department of Transportation Commissioner and NJ TRANSIT Board Chair Diane Gutierrez-Scaccetti. “Expanding the program to include discounts for eligible part-time students is emblematic of NJ TRANSIT’s mission to enhance our services for all who wish to utilize public transportation.”

“As NJ TRANSIT ridership continues to grow, we are doing everything we can in our power to continue incentivizing transit use,” said NJ TRANSIT President & CEO Kevin S. Corbett. “Toward that end, we are pleased to expand our popular Student Pass program to include part-time students in addition to full-time students. College students using transit today will hopefully become tomorrow’s commuters.”

To qualify for the “Buy 3 Months, Get 1 Month Free” promotion, a student at a partner college or university must buy a student monthly pass via the NJ TRANSIT mobile app for three consecutive months: February, March and April of 2023. When the student completes the qualifying purchases in February, March, and April, they will receive a Student Pass equal to the lowest-price purchase made in the previous three months and valid for transportation in May 2023.
