The Student Commuter Rewards Program is a green initiative that promotes Rutgers University–Newark and Camden students to using mass transportation to get to and from classes. By submitting monthly transit receipts, students can receive up to $50 in gift card rewards monthly at kite+key, Rutgers Tech Store or Barnes & Noble (Newark only). The program is an alternative solution to the limited amount of parking available on the Rutgers–Camden, and Newark campuses.

Any currently enrolled Rutgers University-Newark (excluding Newark RBHS) or Rutgers University-Camden student using mass transit through NJT, SEPTA, PATCO, and PATH, for transportation to/from class.
