Cape Flyer 2015Building on its successful three years of operations, the CapeFLYER is excited to announce that trains will run again from Boston to Cape Cod starting on Memorial Day weekend. Service will begin on Friday, May 27th and operate on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout the season until Labor Day.

During the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, the CapeFLYER will provide free service for Service Members and Veterans in partnership with the 12th Annual Troops in the Spotlight event led by Cape Cod Cares for the Troops.

“We are very excited to kick-off our fourth year of the CapeFLYER conveniently bringing people to enjoy Cape Cod while reducing congestion on the bridges and local roads,” said Cape Cod Regional Transit Administrator Thomas S. Cahir. “We are even more excited to have the opportunity to work with Cape Cod Cares for the Troops to honor and recognize our active and Veteran Service Members who have done so much for our nation.” Troops in the Spotlight is a twenty-four hour event to celebrate our Service Members and Veterans; there are various activities and opportunities to support our troops. It begins on Sunday at 11:30AM and concludes on Monday at 11:30AM. For tickets, Service Members and Veterans are encouraged to visit www.capeflyer.com and click on the event link.

“We’re looking forward to the continued success of this service, which offers affordable and convenient transportation to and from the Cape,” said MBTA General Manager Frank DePaola. “As an alternative to the automobile, the CapeFLYER also helps to ease congestion on our roadways and improve air quality.”

For the season, the CapeFLYER will operate as its own dedicated train on Friday nights leaving South Station at 5:50 PM and making stops in Braintree, Brockton, Middleboro, Wareham, Buzzards Bay and Hyannis. Trains also operate on Saturdays and Sundays and holiday Mondays until Labor Day weekend. The complete schedule is available at www.capeflyer.com.

In addition to a convenient trip to Cape Cod, the CapeFLYER works closely with the ferry operators to provide convenient connections to and from Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard. Cape Cod RTA buses are available at Buzzards Bay and Hyannis to bring passengers to their Cape destination. Finally, the CapeFLYER will again operate a café car that sells excellent food and drinks, including beer and wine, provided by Blonde on the Run Catering.

The CapeFLYER is a unique partnership between the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority and the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority.
