MBTA Semester Pass

Each Semester, Bentley offers student passes which provide greater value for those that use the MBTA (bus, subway and commuter-rail service) more than 4 times a week.

The passes reflect a savings of 11% over regular pricing and are valid for unlimited rides for the time period you purchase it for (Fall or Spring Semester). Rates vary by service and zone.

Passes must be purchased in September and in January. Please check with the Card Office to confirm dates for semester pass availability and deadlines for purchase.
