Port Authority Transit (PAT) Free Pass Program

Senior citizens (age 65 or older) can apply at the Franklin Park Municipal Building for a free pass to ride all Port Authority Transportation.  

When applying, eligible seniors must appear in person at the municipal building, complete and sign the required form and submit a clear legible copy of any accepted photo ID:

The application must be completed in person in the presence of an authorized staff member.  No applications may be taken home for a friend or relative to complete. Under no circumstances can a friend or family member sign an application for someone else.  If the applicant cannot sign his/her name, the applicant should make any mark he/she can in the signature space and witnessed by the authorized staff member.


The municipal staff will sign the application form to verify the information is true and correct and will then forward the application directly to the Port Authority. The Port Authority will then process your application and mail your free pass directly to you.  If you have any questions you can call the Port Authority office at 412-442-2000 or visit their website for more information.
