MTA Cards for College Students

This petition had 6,689 supporters


In today’s global marketplace there are few things more important than a college education, but that is getting more and more expensive all the time. The MTA has taken advantage of the fact that millions of students rely on their services to get to, and from work or school. 

Making that education a little more affordable for families and students via free or even discount MTA fares makes all the sense in the world and is an investment that will pay huge dividends down the line for the students we help and eventually our whole economy. Most importantly, it's the right thing to do. 

A student's socioeconomic status shouldn't deter them from not only commuting to and from school but also taking advantage of outside extracurriculars and even internships. 

It's time for New York City and the MTA to invest in our college students.
