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.
