NJ Transit Quik-Tik Program

Columbia University has partnered with NJ Transit to offer full-time undergraduate and graduate students the option to purchase a bus, rail, or light rail monthly pass at 25 percent off the regular monthly pass price.

Enroll through NJ Transit's Quik-Tik program to take advantage of this offer.

General Information

Quik-Tik offers the convenience of auto-pay combined with online account management. You will receive your student monthly pass directly through the mail and your credit card will be automatically billed. Quik-Tik replaces NJ Transit's former paper application process as the method for enrollment in the student discount program.

Important things to remember:

  • You must sign up by the 10th of the month to receive your monthly pass for travel in the next month.
  • A non-refundable $3 processing fee will be applied each month, in addition to the fare for the pass.
  • After you enroll in Quik-Tik, you will receive a new monthly pass in the mail each and every month unless you choose to suspend your account.
  • If you choose to suspend your monthly pass (for example, over winter or summer break), you will need to reactivate your account once again through our secure Columbia University website (this will verify enrollment).
  • Students who participate in this program agree that the monthly pass is for their exclusive use only. Each student is eligible to receive one discounted monthly pass per month. Passes are non-transferable. Any abuse or purposeful deception will result in the cancellation of the student's monthly pass account, and (s)he will be unable to participate in the program in the future. This will also apply to any other student who is knowingly involved.

Getting started is easy. To initially sign up, you must login through the secure CU access link. Your full-time student status will be verified electronically to NJ Transit.

During your enrollment, you will create a Quik-Tik username and password so you can view or manage your account directly from the NJ Transit Quik-Tik login without entering from the Columbia site.
