Where to Get a Ticket or Pass
You can purchase a One Way, Round Trip, 10-Ride, or Monthly Pass through the mTicket app. Monthly Passes on mTicket are $10.00 cheaper than they are on a CharlieTicket. However, unlike passes loaded onto a CharlieTicket, mTicket passes are not valid for use on the Bus and Subway. mTicket App is available in the iPhone App Store and Google Play.
Fare Vending Machines
You can load a One Way, Round Trip, or Monthly (up to Zone 8) Pass onto a CharlieTicket at fare vending machines located in all Subway stations and the following Commuter Rail stations:
You can purchase a One Way or Round Trip Pass on-board with cash. If you board the train at a station that has a fare vending machine, using cash on-board may result in an additional $3.00 fee on top of your regular fare. Round Trip Passes purchased on-board will be valid until the end of service that same day.
Please note: During Fare Is Fair events, you cannot purchase your Commuter Rail fare on board.
