MBTA launches Youth Pass program

The MBTA will launch a “Youth Pass” program on Wednesday, providing discounted service to young adults with low incomes.

Riders between the ages of 18 to 25 who are enrolled in an accepted GED or job training program, or an income-based benefit program, can receive a “LinkPass” for $30 a month, transportation officials said. A monthly “LinkPass” typically costs $84.50.

The pass covers unlimited rides on the subway and local buses, but does not include commuter rail travel.

Youth passes are available to residents of Boston, Chelsea, Malden, and Somerville.

People interested in enrolling can visit mbta.com for more details.
