NJ Transit Discount

The partnership between Montclair State University and NJ TRANSIT that gives students more transportation options and opportunities continues! Montclair State University full-time undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to receive a rail, bus, or light rail monthly pass at 25% off of the regular monthly pass price, when they enroll online through NJ TRANSIT’s Quik-Tik program.

(Note: The discounted NJ Transit Monthly Pass is only available to full-time students during the regular fall and spring semesters.)

New to Quik-Tik?

Getting started is easy. To initially sign up, you must login through the secure Montclair State University access (https://njtransit.montclair.edu/). Your full-time student status will be verified electronically to NJ TRANSIT. When you sign up the price of the monthly pass you order will automatically reflect the 25 percent student discount. During your enrollment, you will create a “Quik-Tik user name and password,” so you can view or manage your account directly from the NJ TRANSIT Quik-Tik login without entering from our university site. To contact Quik-Tik, call 866-QUIK-TIX.

Existing Quik-Tik Users

If you are an existing Student Quik-Tik customer, all you need to do is reactivate your account.

Here’s how:

  • Log into to Montclair State’s NJ TRANSIT Student Discount monthly pass page (the page where you initially went to enroll).
  • Enter required information (student pin, user ID, etc.), and you will be taken the NJ TRANSIT’s Quik-Tik main page. Enter requested information.
  • You are now at the “Account Summary” page. Scroll to the bottom to see your status information.
  • Click on “Change Status.”
  • Click on “Reactivate previously suspended monthly pass mailing” and click on the submit button.

After your account is reactivated, you will again receive monthly passes each month on an automatic basis until next May. You must enter Quik-Tik from Montclair State University NJ Transit website to reactivate your account. If you have any questions regarding reactivating your account, please contact us at 1-866-Quik-Tik.

Why Quik-Tik?

Quik-Tik offers the convenience of auto-pay combined with online account management. You will receive your student monthly pass directly through the mail and your credit card automatically billed.

It’s important to remember:

  • You must sign up by the 10th of the month to receive your monthly pass for the travel in the next month. (Enrollment must be completed on or before the 10th of the previous month to receive the pass for the next month.)
  • Effective with the mailing of September 2009 monthly passes, a non-refundable $3.00 processing fee will be applied each month, in addition to the fare for the pass.
  • After you enroll for Quik-Tik, you will receive a new monthly pass in the mail each and every month unless you choose to suspend your account.
  • If you choose to suspend your monthly pass (winter or summer break), you will need to reactivate your account once again through our secure Montclair State University Quick Tik website (this will verify enrollment).
  • Students who participate in this program agree that the monthly pass is for their exclusive use only. Each student is eligible to receive one discounted monthly pass per month. Passes are non-transferable. Any abuse or purposeful deception will result in the cancellation of the student’s monthly pass account, and (s)he will be unable to participate in the program in the future. This will also apply to any other student who is knowingly involved.
