Commuter Rail Fare Zones

Commuter Rail fares depend on which stops you board and exit the train. Stops are categorized into Zones 1A - 10 based on their distance from downtown Boston. The further the stop is from Boston, the higher its zone number.

How Fare Zones Work

If you’re not sure what zone your station is, we recommend using the Find Your Fare tool.

To and from Zone 1A Fares

If you begin or end your trip at a Zone 1A station, your fare will be based on the zone of the other station you are traveling to or from. For example, if you are traveling from Concord (a Zone 5 station) to North Station (a Zone 1A station), you will pay the Zone 5 One Way fare.

Interzone Fares

If you are not traveling to or from a Zone 1A station, your fare will be an Interzone fare. These are determined by the amount of zones you pass through, including your origin and destination stations. If you are traveling from Concord (Zone 5) to Fitchburg (Zone 8), your fare for a one way trip will be the Interzone 4 One Way fare.
