Fares & Passes

CharlieCards and CharlieTickets make it easy to ride the T. Review fares below or click on a transit mode on the left to see complete fares, passes and reduced fare in detail.

Tickets and cards store value for single or multiple rides, or you can load a T-Pass on your CharlieCard or CharlieTicket and travel as much and as often as you like. No matter how you ride, there's a T-Pass to meet your needs. You can purchase fares and passes at in-station fare vending machines, the CharlieCard Store located in Downtown Crossing, licensed retail sales locations, or online.
