AccessMIT - Commuting Choices

LNS Parking Coordinator - Elsye Luc

In September 2016 MIT introduced the Access MIT program and converted most parking in gated lots on the MIT Cambridge campus to pay-per-day lots that require an Occasional “Pay-per-day” Permit. No annual commitment is required and your total expense will be capped at the current academic year rate (the equivalent of a one-year pass). This new parking program is part of Access MIT. The programs under Access MIT provide commuters with the flexibility to choose, day-to-day, how they would like to commute, and encourage us all to utilize a variety of transportation options over the course of a given week. So ditch the car when you can! Drive today, take the subway or bus tomorrow, and walk when the weather is nice.

New Access MIT commuter benefits include:

  • Free, unrestricted use of the MBTA subway and local bus systems for benefits-eligible Cambridge campus MIT faculty and staff with the Access MIT pass
    • Your MIT ID and T-Pass in One
  • A 60% commuter rail subsidy
  • A 50% subsidy for parking at MBTA stations, up to $100 per month
  • A shift from annual to daily pay-per-day parking plans at MIT gated lots
