Fare Is Fair

Fare Is Fair is a program run by the MBTA Commuter Rail to reduce fare evasion and help riders buy the correct fare for their train.

Random ticket checks are performed at various Commuter Rail stations each day.

During Fare Is Fair events, you’ll be asked by a service agent to show your Commuter Rail ticket before you board your train.
