Weekend tickets are available for purchase:

  • On the mTicket mobile app
  • At the ticket windows at North, South, and Back Bay stations
  • On board from conductors (cash accepted on all trains; credit cards accepted on select trains)

Please note: The $10 weekend ticket is not available at fare vending machines or retail sales locations.

As always, children 11 and younger ride for free when accompanied by a paying adult (up to 2 children per adult).

Does the weekend ticket have any restrictions?

  • Valid on Commuter Rail only
  • Valid from the first scheduled trip on Saturday to the last scheduled trip on Sunday
  • Each $10 weekend ticket is valid for one weekend only, not recurring weekends
  • Not eligible for half fare, for use on the CapeFLYER, or for special event trains (i.e. to Foxboro/Gillette Stadium)

Why is this pilot running?

Unlike weekdays, weekend Commuter Rail service is not in high demand. This $10 weekend fare is a pilot program designed to test the market and encourage people to try Commuter Rail service on weekends, when ample seating is available.
