Metro-North Student Commuter Information
TICKET PURCHASE PROCESS
Metro-North Railroad offers discounted monthly student commuter tickets for students traveling to and from school. Monthly student commuter tickets can be purchased online using the Metro-North "Mail&Ride" program. Once an online account has been established with Metro-North, the user name and pin number remains active until the student graduates. It is not necessary for students to re-register at the beginning of each school year.
Parents who wish to purchase monthly student commuter passes are required to create an account by downloading, completing and submitting the commuter discount monthly ticket application to Lauralton Hall no later than July 15. The completed form can be mailed to Lauralton, attention “Mail&Ride,” scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to 203-876-9760. Lauralton will submit the information to Metro-North and Metro-North will email instructions and a user name and pin number directly to the parent.
To help ensure that a student will have a monthly ticket for use when school starts in September, parents who submit a completed form to Lauralton Hall by July 15 and do not receive an email from Metro-North by mid-August are encouraged to call Metro-North at 212-340-3205 to request the account number and pin number. It is suggested that you also confirm with Metro North that your contact information on file at Metro-North is accurate. Parents who submit the commuter discount monthly ticket application to Lauralton after July 15 will not be able to obtain a monthly pass for use until October. Information on using the Metro-North “Mail&Ride” account to purchase monthly tickets is available at Metro-North Mail & Ride.
