Beginning July 1st, all 2017-2018 academic school year Student Charlie cards will remain active through August 31, 2018, allowing all students with an ACTIVE Student Charlie Card full access to the MBTA at reduced fares over the summer months.
Effective at midnight on June 30, 2018, all M7 Charlie Cards and Student Stored value Charlie cards (s-Card) that are active will both FUNCTION as a Stored Value S-Card, giving students the ability to load both their M7 and S-card with stored value (pay per ride) or a monthly pass at MBTA Fare Vending Machine (FVM) located at any MBTA subway station.
Please NOTE if you lose your card during July and August, there will be NO REPLACEMENT CARDS available. You the student will be responsible for your own cards.
Students, we urge you to use all the stored Value (pay per Ride) Down to ZERO prior to 8/31/18. The MBTA does not have the ability to transfer any leftover funds.
New Cards will be available on September 1st for the new School Year.
