T-Pass Program for Employee at Lexington


MIT subsidizes 50% of the cost of MBTA monthly passes for Lincoln Laboratory employees. Once you are enrolled in the program, you will receive a Charlie Card that allows you to access the MBTA bus and/or subway systems. A Charlie Ticket will be ordered for Commuter Rail and Commuter Boat riders and will be ready for pick up during the last three business days of each month.

Who is Eligible for the MIT T-Pass Program?

Employees who are eligible for payroll deduction and do not have a full-time parking permit for Cambridge Campus lots. Apply online for a T-pass through Atlas.

T-Pass Pickup Locations and Times

When you fill out the T-pass application, you choose one location where you would like to pick up your Charlie Ticket (which includes passes for the commuter rail, inner and outer express busses, and commuter boat) every month: the Parking and Transportation Office, Room E17-106.

Charlie Tickets are available for pick up during the last three business days and the first business day of the month at the Parking and Transportation Office, Room E17-106 from 8AM to 5PM.

If you cannot pick up your tickets during that time, passes will be held in the Parking and Transportation Office and are available weekdays from 8AM to 5PM.

To change your pickup location or make other changes to your T-pass selection, go to the Atlas website.

New Benefit for Commuter Station Parking
