Start planning your winter day trips and weekend excursions and skip the driving! In order to boost weekend ridership on the commuter rail, the MBTA and its operating partner for Commuter Rail, Keolis Commuter Services, announced the special $10 Commuter Rail weekend fare pilot will resume on Saturday, January 5. This special weekend fare is available from the first train on Saturday to the last train on Sunday and may be used across all zones and all lines.
The special $10 all-weekend fare will be available on the mTicket app, onboard trains (cash or credit card from conductors), and at ticket windows at North, South, and Back Bay stations. The special fare applies to customers age 12 and above; the weekend fare allows adults to travel with two children under 12 at no additional cost.
Customers can visit MBTA.com/MassByTrain to explore destinations around the greater Boston area accessible by Commuter Rail and for listings of fun weekend excursions.
This new $10 weekend fair is the perfect excuse to add a trip to Wachusett Mountain or Newburyport Brewing Company to your winter bucket list!
