Young People in Boston Win Weekends for Student Pass Holders!

Recently, young people from the Youth Affordability Coalition reached a big milestone in their campaign to make the T more affordable for young people.  Students in the fall will be able to purchase a student pass at the current price that will extend to include weekends!  The current pass only covers weekdays leaving young people to pay full price on the weekends.

This allows 25,000 students in the 2014 to 2015 academic year weekend access to trains and buses for school events, jobs, medical appointments, family obligations, sports, arts, cultural activities and more.

The Youth Affordability Coalition continues to campaign for a $10 monthly youth pass.  Support their efforts by signing their petition here.
