If you are applying for a TWU position...

 

Right now:

You will get your choice of Metro North or LIRR commutation pass that you will apply for, and you will be eligible for this benefit unless you live in NYC. That pass will be good for only the commuter railroad you elect, you cannot choose both.

NJ Transit is a different agency (non TA) so you would get nothing for Jersey.

 

This may change if the tentative contract agreement is ratified by the members or the commutation pass provision is added in binding arbitration if the contract goes to arbitration. Details would be provided at that time, as it's too early to say without seeing the full text of the new agreement to be voted on.

Sounds like the new contract made it so all of us get the pass now

 

But until it's ratified, or if it's not and the contract goes to arbitration - until the arbitrator rules and chooses to include this provision - the benefit won't be provided just yet. So I'm providing the current info.

 

If the benefit is realized, the specifics of how it will work (separate commuter pass or just use TA pass, all agencies or you have to choose one) can be provided at that time, but if I tried to do that now it would be speculation.

I am a retired NYCT manager living outside NY.  Recently I misplaced my transit pass.  What is the procedure  for receiving a replacement pass?

The best thing to do would be to go to the Pass Unit, located on the 5th Floor of 180 Livingston Street. They're open Mon - Fri, 8:30 to 4:30. You'll probably have some paperwork to fill out, however this would be the place to go. Every other year, all of the retirees go to the same location to have their passes renewed.

Good luck!!
