MassDOT begins Youth Pass program aimed at young people
from The Boston Globe
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation launched a yearlong pilot program to help more young people get access to public transportation for getting to work, school and other activities. The pilot program MBTA Youth Pass will provide monthly passes to those aged 12 to 21 for $26 a month, and make transportation available to 1,500 people from Boston, Somerville, Chelsea and Malden, MassDOT said in a statement. The partnership between those cities and the MBTA offers the current Student Pass program, which is usually available only to middle- and high-school students, to a larger youth population, the transportation department said. The Student Pass allows reduced fares for eligible students.
