Why Mobile Student Monthly Passes?

Mobile passes offer the convenience of purchasing and displaying your student monthly pass on your mobile device.  No need to pre-pay or wait for a paper ticket in the mail.  Buy at your leisure. 

It's important to remember:

  • Download the NJ TRANSIT app 
  • Open the app and tap BUY 
  • Sign in with your .edu email and password 
  • Select a Student Monthly pass and pay for it in the app 
  • Monthly passes are available for purchase from the 19th of the previous month through the 10th of the month the pass is valid
  • On the 1st of the month your student pass will display in the app

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.
