How to Avoid Cape Cod Traffic for as Little as $10

Arriving at the Cape without dealing with traffic, reclining in a comfortable chair with great views and a cocktail in hand sounds pretty good, right?

What if it was for just $10?

The CapeFLYER is back for its tenth summer and offers just that. During the month of June, the train service that brings Bostonians to Hyannis, with stops in Braintree, Brockton, Middleborough, Wareham Village, Buzzards Bay and Bourne, offers roundtrip travel for just $10. Round trips outside of June are $40, and children 11 and under ride free with a paying adult.

“We are very excited to begin our tenth season offering visitors and locals transportation to the Cape and Islands without encountering traffic. It is wonderful to put the third Cape Bridge (the rail bridge) to use to alleviate the congestion that summer weekends have on our infrastructure. We have worked closely with the Steamship Authority, Hy-Line and Island Queen ferry operators to provide seamless connections to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard,” said CCRTA Administrator Thomas Cahir. “We’re excited to offer our loyal riders this $10 round-trip fare for the entire month of June as a thank you for all their years of travel.”

CapeFLYER trains are equipped with a Café Car offering light meals and cocktails courtesy of Blonde on the Run Catering. There is also a bus that can take your bike up to Cape Cod if you want to hop directly onto the Cape Cod Rail Trail.

“We are excited to once again offer this service with our partners at Keolis and CCRTA, and congratulate the CapeFLYER team on 10 years of service,” said MBTA General Manager and CEO Phillip Eng. “CapeFLYER is another example of the importance we place on supporting transit services outside the scope of the traditional daily commute. We look forward to another successful CapeFLYER season as we demonstrate the benefits of using public transportation.”
