Encourage your student to pick up their MBTA Student Charlie Card from the Bigelow main office this spring. The card lets students ride the MBTA at the reduced fare rate ($0.85 for regular bus, $1.10 for subway). The card comes empty so you will need to add value to it at an MBTA station.
The Student Charlie Card isn’t just for school travel; it also works on the subway, express buses, and commuter rail and is valid through August 31 so will work all summer for your student to get around.
