The City of Malden would like to remind residents of the MBTA’s Youth Pass program. The Youth Pass Program offers reduced fares on bus, subway, Commuter Rail, Express Bus, and ferry to young adults with low income. Maldenwas one of the first cities to partner with the MBTA in 2015, and the program continues to effectively benefit hundreds of Malden residents to this day.  

Youth Pass CharlieCards can be loaded with cash value for roughly 50% reduced one-way fares, or $30 monthly LinkPasses for unlimited bus, subway, and Fairmount Line Zone 1A travel. Cards may also be used for reduced one-way fares on Commuter Rail and ferry.

To apply for the Malden MBTA Youth Pass you must: currently be a Malden resident, be between 18-25 years old, and be enrolled in at least one Youth Pass partner program such as; State or federal benefit programs (like MASSGrant, MassHealth, or SNAP), Alternative education programs (like high school equivalency degree programs), or Job training or professional development programs (like Year Up or Roca). Full list of partner programs

“I heard loud and clear from our youth that there was a tremendous need for a reduced fare program for students,” said Mayor Christenson. “I’m grateful to the MBTA for working with us and making Malden part of this program.”

Youth Pass CharlieCards are valid from November 1 to October 31 of each year, regardless of when they were received. The 2021 Youth Pass is valid through October 31, 2021 and the 2022 Youth Pass will be active starting November 1, 2021. 

For more information on the MBTA Youth Pass program or to apply for the 2021-2022 Youth Pass please visit the MBTA Youth Pass website. Once your application is reviewed/ accepted your Youth Pass Card will be sent via mail.
