The T has announced a special $10 summer weekend fare, valid for unlimited travel through all zones on Saturdays and Sundays, beginning June 9, 2018. This initiative is designed to attract weekend ridership and get you to great places on the North Shore.
This pilot program will be offered every weekend through September 2, 2018 - the $10 weekend fare will be valid for all Commuter Rail zones from the first scheduled Saturday trip through the last scheduled Sunday trip.
The $10 fare will be available on mTicket, onboard trains, and at ticket windows at North, South, and Back Bay Stations. The special fare applies to customers age 12 and above; paying adults can bring two children under 12 for free.
During the summer pilot, MBTA staff hope to learn more about weekend Commuter Rail ridership demand, receive customer feedback, and evaluate the pilot's impact on overall ridership and revenue balance through data collected from mTicket and retail windows. You are encouraged to email comments and inquiries about the special fare pilot at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With the exception of the CapeFlyer, operated through a partnership with the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority, and special event trains, this pilot applies to all MBTA Commuter Rail services.
