Over the past few weeks, the Youth Affordabili(T) Coalition has been increasing pressure on MassDOT and the MBTA to stop proposed Student Pass fare hikes and implement a Youth Pass. Young people have sent thousands of tweets to the MBTA, rallied at the Transportation Building and already have 2,500+ signatures online and on paper in support of a Youth Pass.
Add your name to the growing list of Youth Pass supporters! The monthly pass would cost $10, have no time or day restrictions and would be available to all youth from 12 to 21 years old. Affordable public transportation will prevent young people from getting stranded, increase opportunities for jobs and extracurricular activities, and make sure youth have equal access to everything from education to healthcare.
