  • Shipping Information: Please note there is a shipping charge on every CommuterDirect.com® order each time an order is shipped. The shipping charge, however, will be waived on MARC, MTA Commuter Bus, or VRE orders shipped under the US First-Class Mail option. Recurring orders are processed and shipped before the pass period begins, you can expect delivery of your order a few days prior to the beginning of the pass period.

  • One-time Orders for December Tickets: If you are trying to place a onetime order for a December ticket, please note that pass availability is based on the shipping date, and orders that will be shipped before the 11th will be for the current month's (November's) passes. We encourage you to create a recurring order starting for December. Recurring orders will be automatically sent each month provided there is a valid payment method in your account wallet (SmartBenefits, employer-sponsored debit/credit card, credit card, etc.) with no further action required by you.
