cape-flyer-train-jpgEntering its sixth year of service, the CapeFLYER has announced that trains will again be running from Boston to Cape Cod starting on Memorial Day weekend. Service will begin on Friday, May 25th and operate on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays through Labor Day.

To better serve the CapeFLYER passengers, two new fare initiatives are being announced.  First, customers will be able to buy ten (10) round-trip tickets for the price of eight (8) on the MBTA mobile app (mTicket).

“So many of our customers ride with us all summer and we wanted to develop a way to recognize their loyalty and dedication by providing a convenient, discounted pass,” said Cape Cod Regional Transit Administrator Thomas S. Cahir.

Second, for the weekends of June 2nd and June 9th, the CapeFLYER will be offering special $20 round-trip tickets so that visitors can enjoy all of the early summer events that take place on Cape Cod and the Islands.  “Early summer is one of the best times to visit Cape Cod and the Islands – especially after the winter we all just went through.  This is our way of encouraging people to come down to ride their bikes, try a restaurant, see the ocean and go to one of the many festivals that take place in June.” Customers can contact the CapeFLYER at (508) 775-8504 through May 25th to obtain one of the early season special weekend tickets.

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 the Cape communities.  Finally, the CapeFLYER will again operate a café car that sells excellent food and drinks, including beer, wine, and cocktails provided by Blonde on the Run Catering.

The CapeFLYER is a unique partnership between MassDOT, the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority and the MBTA.  For additional information, including a complete schedule, fares and information about connections, please visit:  www.CapeFLYER.com
