Fares & Passes

CharlieCards and CharlieTickets make it easier than ever to ride the T. Review fares below or click on a transit mode on the left to see complete fares, passes and reduced fare 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. Visit a T-Pass Sales office, full-service, in-station
fare vending machine, and retail sales location or buy T-Passes online.
