The MBTA offers a 50% student discount for travel on the commuter rail with their valid Concord Academy ID. In addition, your child can order a Student CharlieCard Pass which provides additional services as outlined below.
The monthly pre-loaded Student CharlieCard Pass will be active 7 days a week throughout this academic year (2020-2021). The cost is $30/month which will be billed to your student’s Activities Account. (Subject to change per the MBTA). The Student CharlieCard Pass will allow your student to ride the bus, subway, express bus, and commuter rail without additional payment. (BUT ONLY THROUGH ZONES 1A, 1, and 2). HOWEVER, the stop for Concord center is ZONE 5, thus payment will be required (at 50% discount) for your student to complete the journey. We have been informed by the MBTA that cash is the only option for this payment at this time.
If you wish to purchase the monthly pre-loaded 7 day Student CharlieCard Pass, please print out & return this form to the Student Life Office. Check the appropriate line below. Your student account will be billed accordingly. If you wish to make any changes, please notify us by the 15th day of the preceding month. For example: If you do not want to be billed for an October pass, we would need notification by September 15. If your preloaded Student CharlieCard Pass is lost or stolen, you must let the Student Life Office know immediately so your card can be deactivated by the MBTA.

In order to get your Student CharlieCard Pass for September-May, we ask that you return this form by June 29.
