Savings for Seniors, People With Disabilities, Military
Are you qualified for our Reduced Fare Program? If you’re a senior citizen who is 62 years of age or older (65 years of age for travel to/from Metro-North stations) or a person with a disability, you’re eligible to apply to NJ TRANSIT’s Reduced Fare Program! As a member of our program, you can save 50 percent on a regular one-way ticket.
With this program, you can ride any NJ TRANSIT bus, rail or light rail service at a reduced rate at any time. Just show your Reduced Fare ID or Medicare Card, along with your ticket, to the operator or conductor. If you’re a senior citizen, you might be asked to show a valid ID that includes your date of birth, issued by a government, social service, or mass transportation agency, when purchasing your reduced ticket.
Don’t know how to apply? No worries! If you’re a senior citizen, you can click here to find a printable application, or you can fill out an application at your local bank, savings and loan associations or county Offices on Aging. People with Disabilities can click here for a printable application that needs to be completed by a physician or certifying agency, or you can call or email the NJ TRANSIT Reduced Fare Office or an authorized state, county or local agency that serve people with disabilities to obtain an application. Once your application is completed, follow the mailing instructions and we’ll do the rest!
By the way, we also offer discounts to active military service members, their dependents and veterans with service-connected disabilities. To find out more, click here. If eligible, we hope you take advantage of one of these great opportunities!
