Is it worth buying a Commuter pass?


#1

Hii,

I’m going to Tokyo this friday and I will be studying there for 3 months and I was wondering if it would be worth buying a commuter pass or if there are any other options?
I am going to be travelling 6 days a week between Nishidai and Omotesando.
Also with the commuter pass are you only able to travel that specific route?

The commuter passes offer big savings - especially if you’re a student. if you do 26 trips per month on that route, it will cost you 18,824yen without a pass. If you get the commuter pass, it will cost 8,520yen for 1 month or 24,290yen for 3 months. Make sure you have your student ID when you apply for it.

Hii,

Thank you for your reply :slight_smile: would I still be able to apply for it without a student ID? I am going to be studying Ikebana and wont be getting any student ID.

The student ID requirement is strict. If you can’t get some kind of student ID, then at least you will be entitled to the regular discount on getting a commuter pass.
