Obtaining an MBTA Pass

Tufts University, in partnership with Edenred Commuter Benefit Solutions, has implemented an online storefront for the purchase of MBTA Passes. All discounted MBTA passes must be purchased through your SIS Portal. Along with hosting the site, Edenred will be offering customer service for all technical questions that may arise. Edenred will also send a reminder email before each purchase deadline.

  • All passes must be ordered by the 8th day of prior purchasing month.
  • All Fall semester passes (September-December) will need to be purchased by August 8th.
  • All Spring semester passes (January-May) will need to be purchased by December 8th.
  • Before all purchases are made you will have the ability to update your delivery address for the pass. Your new pass will be mailed directly to the address that the user has inputted.

    • Log into SIS
    • Navigate to your “Bills & Balances” Tab
    • Click the link to “Purchase MBTA Pass”
