New! Reduced Prices for Cash and CharlieTicket Fares
The MBTA lowered cash-on-board and CharlieTicket fares on September 1. Previously, the MBTA charged a higher fare for riders using cash or a paper CharlieTicket. Today, whether you use a paper CharlieTicket, a plastic CharlieCard, or cash on board, the fare is the same price.
The fares for CharlieTicket and cash-on-board riders are, now:
- $1.70 for a local bus (reduced by $0.30 for CharlieTicket/cash riders)
- $2.40 for rapid transit, Green Line, and Silver Line (reduced by $0.50 for CharlieTicket/cash riders)
- $4.25 for inner express buses (reduced by $1.00 for CharlieTicket/cash riders)
