Learn More About Renewable Orders



Renewable orders are automatically renewed each calendar month, and shipped to arrive a few days before the beginning of the month. Renewable orders can easily be suspended for one or more months, or cancelled, when your transit needs change.

  • Ordering: To create a Renewable Order, click on Renewable Orders and select your transit system.
    • Select your product from the transit system order form.
    • Choose desired product quantity.
    • Select the starting month for your order.
    • Select Start and Destination points, if applicable.

  • Fare Vouchers: You are able to pay for your purchase using fare vouchers. To pay for a renewable order with a payment voucher, you must have a credit card saved in your account. If the fare voucher does not cover your total order amount, your credit card will be charged for the remaining balance of your order. Fare vouchers are due within 10 business days of your order. Please fill out the Fare Voucher Mail-In Form, print it out, and send it in with your fare vouchers within 10 business days of your order date. If we don't receive the payment voucher(s) within 10 business days, your order will be charged to your default payment account.
  • 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 or VRE orders shipped under the US First-Class Mail option. Renewable 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. For more information about our shipping policies, rates, and carriers please visit our Help & Information System.
  • One-time Orders for September Tickets:If you are trying to place a onetime order for a September ticket, please note that the September tickets are not available until 2:00 PM on the 9th of August. Orders submitted before 2:00pm on the 9th of August will be for an August ticket. We encourage you to create a renewable order starting for September. Renewable orders will be automatically sent each month provided there is a valid payment method in your account wallet (SmartBenefits, employer sponsored debit card, credit card, etc.) with no further action required by you.
