Why Choose a CharlieTicket?
Paying your fare with a CharlieTicket is a good choice if you:
Are a tourist or visitor. The 1-day and 7-day passes sold on CharlieTickets grant unlimited travel* on the MBTA bus, subway, Commuter Rail Zone 1A, and Charlestown Ferry. Those sold on CharlieCards are only valid on bus and subway. *Note that CharlieTicket passes are valid from the date and time of purchase.
Need a monthly Commuter Rail or ferry pass. Monthly Commuter Rail and ferry passes on CharlieTickets grant you unlimited travel on other MBTA modes, including Local Bus and subway. You can also conveniently purchase most passes at fare vending machines.
Rarely use public transportation. If you don’t use the MBTA to commute or are taking a rare trip on the Commuter Rail or ferry as a bus/subway rider, you may want to purchase an exact fare on a CharlieTicket.
If you are a regular bus or subway rider, you may want to consider using a CharlieCard to pay your fare. CharlieCards offer lower single-ride fare prices, more transfers, and easy tap-through access at fare gates and fare boxes.
