MBTA Passes Students are eligible for monthly student MBTA passes valid for unlimited travel on Bus, Subway, Express Bus, and Commuter Rail Zones 1A, 1, and 2 on school days.
All Cathedral students who live within the city of Boston and live more than two miles from Cathedral High School receive an M7 Pass for free from Boston Public Schools. Eligibility for a free pass is determined by the student’s address of record with the school. All other students are provided the opportunity to purchase the student MBTA passes from the school at a cost of $30 per month. Students must bring in cash or check (payable to Cathedral High School) during the last ten school days of the month to obtain a pass for the following calendar month.
Students who do not utilize the MBTA frequently may opt to use the MBTA “S Card” instead of a monthly student pass. The “S Card” is a Student CharlieCard which may be loaded in advance with money at any MBTA CharlieCard machine and permits students to use the MBTA at the reduced student fare (about 50% off standard fares).
