MBTA Charlie Card Commuter RailMBTA interim General Manager Frank DePaola today announced that CharlieCards with monthly passes printed on them are available for Corporate Pass Program participants and customers who make monthly pass purchases on the MBTA website.

The CharlieCard monthly passes replace paper tickets, which are not as durable as the plastic smartcards. Commuter Rail passes purchased by vending machines or at sales offices will continue to be delivered in ticket form.

The MBTA in January began testing of the CharlieCards printed with a monthly commuter rail pass. General Manager DePaola said the pilot program received overwhelmingly positive feedback from customers. The CharlieCard commuter rail passes are used as ‘flash passes’ on board commuter rail trains and then used like any other CharlieCard for bus and subway service.

Commuter rail customers are encouraged to visit MBTA Commuter Rail Fares and Passes online to purchase an April commuter rail pass.
