Worcester joined the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority [MBTA] Youth Pass program, which is now accepting applications from eligible young people between the ages of 12 and 25 who meet the program's requirements.

The program helps eligible young people receive half-off one-way fares and monthly passes for $30.

Individuals are eligible when between 12 and 17 years old not enrolled in middle or high school. Students may receive a Student CharlieCard through their school.

Individuals between 18 and 25 years old and enrolled in a Youth Pass partner program, are also eligible. Those programs include:

  • Alternative education program (e.g., high school equivalency degree programs);
  • Job training or professional development program (e.g., Year Up, Roca);
  • State or federal benefit program (e.g., MassHealth, SNAP, fuel assistance).

Those who meet the program qualifications can apply online. Approved applicants will receive their cards in the mail or can pick their card up at the City’s Division of Youth Opportunities located at 128 Providence Street, Worcester, MA 01604.
