MBTA Green Line 3-Car Train, March 16, 2011MBTA Green Line D-branch customers will board at the front door only during weekends, holidays, and off-peak hours beginning Tuesday, April 17.

Front door only fare collection is already in effect on other branches of the Green Line.

During peak hours of 6:30-9:30 am and 3:30-7:00 pm, customers will be able to board at the side and rear doors with a pre-loaded CharlieCard, CharlieTicket, or valid pass.

This past winter, the MBTA began conducting monthly "fare blitzes" in an effort to enforce the collection of all fares and to remind customers that they should be paying their fare to ride the system. The front door only policy will assist the MBTA's ongoing effort to enforce the collection of all transit fares.

Persons with disabilities and customers with strollers will be allowed to exit through the side and rear doors.

Customers are encouraged to have pre-loaded CharlieCards, CharlieTickets, and valid passes prior to boarding in order to avoid delays during fare collection. Learn more about CharlieCard and Ticket sales at the MBTA website.
