Discount MBTA Program

College of Arts & Sciences and Sawyer Business School students can purchase semester MBTA passes at a discounted rate. The deadline to participate in the Fall 2019 Discount MBTA Pass Program is August 5th at 3 pm. Semester MBTA pass will cover September, October, November and December.

Please pay close attention to what option(s) you are selecting, as once purchased we can not make adjustments or cancel an order. Order your discounted MBTA pass.

Processing Fees

The MBTA will not allow any refunds, exchanges or cancellations once the order has been placed. Also, please note that all payments will be assessed a non-refundable 3.63 percent processing fee. The fee is charged by TMANIA TICKETS, a third-party processor, not Suffolk University. Suffolk University receives no benefit or revenue from this fee.

Charges will be noted on your credit card or bank statement as "TMANIA TICKETS". If this charge is reported as fraudulent (because you don't recognize the vendor or you believe the charge is incorrect), your order will be in danger of cancellation.


For specific information or general questions about your personal commute, (routes, bus numbers, which T-line) please contact the MBTA. If you have questions about Suffolk's discount pass program or your pass purchase, please call the Ram Card office at 617-570-4882 or email Ram Card. MBTA will send passes directly to Suffolk University shortly prior to a beginning of the covered period. You will receive email notification when passes are ready to be picked up and the hours staff members are available to assist you (at the Student Services Hub, located at 20 Somerset).


Suffolk University employees may take advantage of the Commuter Benefit Program offered by Human Resources.
