T-Pass Program for Employees at Lexington

For Lincoln Laboratory employees, MIT subsidizes 50% of the cost of MBTA monthly T-passes, which are available in a variety of options:

  • Local bus only
  • Local bus and subway
  • Commuter rail plus local bus and subway (covering a range of zones)
  • Inner express bus plus Silver Line, subway, and local bus
  • Outer express bus plus Inner express bus, Silver Line, subway, and local bus
  • Commuter boat plus local bus and subway

Who is eligible?

MIT employees who are eligible for payroll deduction and do not have a full-time off-campus parking account or campus resident parking account at MIT.

How and when to get a T-pass, and how to renew it

To obtain a monthly T-pass, you must complete the order in your Atlas account at least one month and one day in advance. The monthly pass will renew each month automatically unless you cancel it online.

If you want to cancel your automatically renewing T-pass, you must do this through Atlas by the 15th of your final active month. The T-pass will continue auto-renewing until you cancel.

When and where to pick up the T-pass

Monthly T-passes are couriered in a single batch to Lincoln Lab before the beginning of each month. You will receive an email notification near the end of the current month telling you when and where next month’s passes will be available for distribution.

To make any changes to your T-pass account, go to the Atlas website. T-pass accounts can be suspended for up to three months.
