Ride the T

Reduced Fares

Salem State’s ClipperCard Office provides students with 11 percent subsidies for T passes and gives out free Charlie Cards that provide discounts on bus and subway fares, while supplies last. You can save $.30 on all local bus rides and $.50 on the subway with a plastic Charlie Card instead of a paper Charlie ticket.

The MBTA offers unlimited rides on the commuter rail on the weekends for $10. Buy commuter rail tickets on your phone with the MBTA mTicket App.

The MBTA also has a Youth Pass program for those aged 18-25 who live in participating communities and who meet low-income eligibility requirements. This pass discounts fares by roughly 50 percent.

Bus, Subway, Commuter Rail

MBTA bus #455 travels to and from the Wonderland T-stop in Revere and the Salem commuter rail station in downtown Salem, stopping at Salem State’s North, Central, and South campuses as well as the School of Social Work along the way.

The MBTA’s Salem commuter rail stop on the Newburyport/Rockport line is located in downtown Salem, a 15-minute walk from North Campus. The stop at North Station in Boston connects to the MBTA’s extensive subway system.

The MBTA currently requires that all passengers wear a mask while riding. Learn more about MBTA safety measures.
