The deadline to participate in the Spring 2020 Discount Semester MBTA Pass Program has passed.  Please check back for Fall 2020 information.

Pick Up

The MBTA will send passes directly to Suffolk University Off-Campus Housing Office shortly prior to the beginning of the covered period. You will receive email notification when the passes are ready to be picked up and the hour’s staff members are available to assist at the Commuter Student Lounge, located on the 1st floor of 73 Tremont Street. Passes WILL NOT be mailed to you, as you will receive an email with directions on how to pick up your pass on campus.

*Please note that all “Zone Passes” and “Ferry Passes” will need to be picked up at the beginning of each month, and cannot be replaced if lost or stolen.

Replacement Request

If you’ve ordered an MBTA semester pass with Suffolk University or live in 1047 Commonwealth Avenue and have misplaced or disabled your pass, please fill out the form below to request a replacement.
