Introducing our new Lifeline Cards

Lifeline Card Image

Lifeline Cards are reusable plastic cards that can be loaded with multiples of 5 one-way tickets for passenger travel on board our traditional ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. Beginning May 15, 2018, new Lifeline Cards will replace our Ferry Pass cards and will be available for purchase at all terminals.

Customers can reload Lifeline cards at any Steamship Authority Ticket Office or online at this website:

https://tickets.steamshipauthority.com/lifelinecard

Lifeline Card holder benefits:

  • discounted fares for passenger travel
  • reload your card at any Steamship Authority Ticket Office and online
  • link your Lifeline Card to your Steamship Authority Profile Account
  • scan your card at the docks for fast and easy boarding

Helpful Tip: in the event you lose your Lifeline card, we encourage you to take note of your Lifeline card code and card number, which is located on the back of your card, or you can take a picture of the back of your card with your mobile phone for quick and easy access.The SSA is not responsible for any lost cards.

Changes to our Multi-ride Card Policy

We have revised our policy currently allowing customers to use multiple coupons per trip from the same 10-ride ticket book/Ferry Pass cards for travel on the Authority’s traditional ferries to ensure our compliance with the Passenger Embarkation Fee Statute.

Changes to the policy include:

1. Tickets from each new Lifeline card will be limited to one use per trip, similar to our current Martha's Vineyard 46-ride commuter cards.

2. To reduce the financial hardship to our customers who will now need to purchase multiple cards when two or more of them are traveling together, we have reduced the minimum number of tickets sold in the cards to multiples of 5 one-way tickets.

3. The expiration of these new Lifeline Cards will be the same for both routes and are valid for passage only within one year from the end of the month in which the Lifeline Card is sold.  If a Lifeline Card is reloaded, the expiration for all coupons on the cards is extended to one year from the end of the month in which the Lifeline Card is last reloaded.

This policy change will affect the Adult, Child, Student, Senior and Individuals with Disabilities cards, but does not affect the 10-ride high-speed ferry ticket books or the Martha's Vineyard 46-ride commuter cards.

 For Current Ferry Pass Holders

Current holders of Ferry Pass cards (10-ride) will be grandfathered in their use  and we will honor those cards based upon the rules that were in place when those cards were originally purchased. Ferry Pass card holders will still be able to use these cards for multiple passengers on the same trip.  Customers will be able to reload their Ferry Pass cards until May 14, 2018 at a Steamship Authority Ticket Office or online at https://tickets.steamshipauthority.com/ferrypass.

On May 15, 2018 the Ferry Pass cards will no longer be able to be reloaded or available for sale. If you have linked your Steamship Authority Profile Account to your Ferry Pass card(s), you will still be able to see how many tickets are left on your Steamship Authority Profile Account until they are used up.
