MBTA LogoIn a partnership with the Cities of Boston, Chelsea, Malden, and Somerville, the MBTA today announced a Youth Pass Pilot program.

The Youth Pass is a LinkPass valid on local bus and subway and will be open to up to 1,500 eligible youth between the ages of 12 and 21 who live in the cities of Boston, Chelsea, Malden and Somerville.

“The Youth Pass Pilot demonstrates how MassDOT and the MBTA are building innovative relationships with cities and towns to meet the mobility needs of their residents,” said MassDOT Secretary and CEO Stephanie Pollack.

The Youth Pass will cost $26 a month or $7 for a 7-day pass (7-day pass availability depends on city partner).

Interested youth can apply to participate in the Youth Pass pilot and spots will be allocated based on a random lottery of eligible applicants.

Applications are due April 30, 2015. The pilot starts July 1, 2015 and will last for a year.

Passes will be sold at municipal partner offices in each city and participants will have to return each month or week to pay.
