Cape FlyerMassDOT and the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority (CCRTA) today announced CapeFLYER weekend rail service to Cape Cod and the Islands will begin Friday, May 23 through Labor Day, with an improved schedule and new station stop at Wareham Village.  

“CapeFLYER is a proven success in giving customers from the Greater Boston area a quick, convenient and car-free option to enjoy the attractions, beaches and restaurants of the Cape and Islands,” said MassDOT Secretary and CEO Richard A. Davey.  “We also hope that local residents will use CapeFLYER to conveniently enjoy the Cape and Islands without having to drive.”

“The new CapeFLYER schedule on Friday night represents a significant improvement over last summer’s trip,” said Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority Administrator Thomas S. Cahir.  “Working with MassDOT and the MBTA, we have been able to reduce the trip time on Friday nights to approximately two and a quarter hours.  We believe this will encourage more visitors to leave their cars behind to enjoy all that the Cape & Islands have to offer while at the same time reducing congestion.”  

CapeFLYER trains in 2014 will include a station stop at Wareham Village to provide customers with another destination option.  The new station will be located off Main Street near the Wareham Fire Department. 

The train will continue to coordinate with ferries to provide shuttles that will allow customers to reach Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.  All CapeFLYER trains throughout the weekend will now make the same station stops throughout the season.  CapeFLYER again this year will include bike racks and bike tools so customers can bring their bikes – and even tune them up onboard – for their time on the Cape.

In its inaugural season, the CapeFLYER had 16,586 riders and generated $290,756 in fare revenue.Visit www.capeflyer.com  for complete schedules and ticket information.
