Transportation and Commuting

Public Transportation Passes

The Boston Conservatory has a relationship with the MBTA, Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, or known to Bostonians as "The T" to offer students discounted semester passes. Information about the monthly T-Pass program is available online, in the Student Resource Center, and will be emailed to all students at the end of each term.

Please take a look at the Monthly T-Pass Information issued by the MBTA for details on the different types of passes. This is useful in deciding which pass to purchase. 

**NOTE**  Participating in the monthly T-Pass program is optional. If you are a new incoming student living on campus you may find that you do not need a monthly T-Pass, but if you decide you are interested in participating in the monthly T-Pass, most students find that the monthly LINK Pass is a good choice. The LINK Pass gives you access to the standard subway system (Blue, Orange, Green, Red, & Silver Lines) as well as all Local Bus Routes and Trackless Trolley Routes.

The Spring 2016 T-Pass Order Form (PDF) must be returned along with payment by Friday, December 11, 2015. This order form reflects the discounted price. Due to deadlines set by the MBTA, passes may not be ordered after this date. 

You will be notified when T-Passes are ready for pick up (End of December) and they will be activated for use by January 1, 2016. T-Pass pickup will be in the Mailroom - 31 Hemenway St.

Checks or Money Orders should be made payable to The Boston Conservatory.

Order forms and checks should be mailed to:

Student Resource Center/Student Programs Dept.
31 Hemenway St.
Boston, MA 02115

Order forms and checks can also be dropped off in person at The Student Resource Center in the lower level of 24 The Fenway.

CharlieCards

The alternative to the monthly T-Pass is the CharlieCard. The CharlieCard is a 'smart card' that stores value for single or multiple-rides. You load the card with value using cash, credit/debit cards, or recharge online.

CharlieCards are currently available for Subway and Bus use only. For more information on the CharlieCard visit the MBTA website. Students will be able to purchase a CharlieCard anytime during the semester at most T stations. 

The closest T station to campus that issues CharleCards is the Hynes Green Line station located less than a 5 minute walk from campus at the corner of Massachusetts Ave and Newbury Street.

Commuter Lockers

A limited number of lockers are available to commuters and are located in the basement of 8 The Fenway.

  • Lockers are available on a first-come first-serve basis.
  • Lockers are only available for full-time students.
  • Locker sign-up will be available for all commuter students beginning on the first day of classes.
