Monthly Pass Auto-pay Program

Tired of waiting in line to buy your T pass at the end of each month? 

Sign up for the new auto-pay pilot so you never have to worry about reloading your CharlieCard again. Signing up is free and easy, and your pass will be renewed automatically each month. 

We're currently offering auto-pay for the Monthly LinkPass. This pass costs $84.50 and provides unlimited travel on the subway and Local Buses for 1 adult for a calendar month. After the pilot phase, we hope to expand the program to other passes.


How does it work?

  • Automatic Recurring Payment: Your credit card will be billed $84.50 on the 22nd of August for your September pass. We will save your credit card information securely, and you will be charged on or around the 22nd of every month for the next month's pass.
  • New CharlieCard: You will be mailed a new CharlieCard. Existing CharlieCards cannot be used. On the first of each month, your pass will automatically renew on this CharlieCard. 
  • Suspend or Cancel Any Time: You may suspend or cancel auto-pay at any time. Once you cancel, you can continue to use your pass until the end of the calendar month for which you have been charged. Please note that we cannot provide refunds for partial months.
  • Feedback: We value your feedback as we work to improve the T. As a participant in this pilot program, you may be contacted to provide feedback on your experience with auto-pay. We also ask that you provide us your old CharlieCard number (if you have one), so we can better understand patterns of use. 

Who can sign up?

Anyone who rides the bus or subway regularly and would like an easier way to pay for their monthly LinkPass. 

Important Note: If you are already enrolled in recurring billing or an employer-based program, you should NOT sign up for this program.
