Commuter Rail Fare Zones
The Commuter Rail is divided into 11 fare zones, from Zone 1A to Zone 10. Stations in metro Boston are in Zone 1A, and every Zone beyond that indicates each station's distance from Boston.
Your Commuter Rail fare depends on which Zones your boarding and exiting stations are located in.
If your trip begins or ends at a station located in Zone 1A, your fare is based on the location of the other station you are traveling to or from.
For example, a 1-way trip from Concord (Zone 5) to North Station (Zone 1A) is a Zone 5 fare. You will also pay a Zone 5 fare for a 1-way trip from North Station to Concord.
If your trip begins and ends anywhere other than Zone 1A, your fare will be based on the number of zones you pass through, including your origin and destination.
For example, a 1-way trip from Concord (Zone 5) to Fitchburg (Zone 8) is an Interzone 4 fare. You will also pay an Interzone 4 fare for a 1-way trip from Fitchburg to Concord.
