Student monthly passes will only be available through the Web sites of selected universities. In the participating universities, the students will have the ability to:
The main assumption is that each university/college has its own web site, and that each full time student has access to that web site. It is also assumed that each full time student has a unique University student ID or login ID that can be passed to NJ Transit as part of the process. It is the responsibility of the university to ensure that their system allows only current full time students to have access to the NJ Transit Quik-Tik link from the participant’s web site.
Because each university or college's web implementation is specific to their environment, our requirements are intended to be generalized enough to allow for maximum participation.
In essence, a college wishing to participate with NJ Transit will provide NJT with its unique 4-character SAT code. They also need to provide us with the full URL of the page that they wish to link to us from. We do not validate on partial URLs. This URL must be static. It can not contain any variable information. The provided information will be added to our University Table. This must be done prior to any testing or attempts to connect to QuikTik from the school web site will fail validation and therefore not get the student discount.
For the sake of example, let’s say that John Birck University (JBU) wants to participate. They provide us with their unique university id of "1234". They provide us with the URL of the page they will be linking to us from http://www.jbu.edu/student_deals.htm.
In the case of JBU, the following html examples will help to clarify. The student ID that we will use is in these examples is JBU1234567.
NJ Transit, on receiving the request, looks up the UNID in its database and validates that the "referer" header is the same as the URL provided to us by the university (i.e., that the student is logged into the university and linking to us from the appropriate page). NJ Transit then combines UNID and STID into a single unique identifier for the individual and allows the student to either signup for Quik-Tik (at the appropriate discount), or manage their account.
Once a school provides their credentials (SAT code and Referer URL) and it has been confirmed that they have been added to the NJ Transit University Table, a diagnostic program can be run from the URL: https://ww2.njtransit.com/qt/qt_servlet.srv?hdnPageAction=QTDiagTo to validate whether the university’s process is compatible with the above specifications. This diagnostic URL should be placed in the action attribute of the form element with the appropriate values for university_code and student_id as follows:
