In 2010, the City of Boston piloted a new card to make the City's educational resources easier for students to access. Rather than carry a separate MBTA pass, school ID, library card and community center card, students at Josiah Quincy Upper School only needed one card - the Boston One Card.
Following the successful pilot program, the One Card program has scaled up to all high schools in the Boston Public Schools system.
If you have any questions about this card, want to tell us what you think of it, or have ideas for how it could be better, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
