Blind Access CharlieCard
People who are blind or have low vision, as well as an accompanying guide, ride all MBTA services for free with a Blind Access CharlieCard.
Service animals are always allowed on the MBTA.
How to Apply for a Blind Access CharlieCard
You must have a valid, government-issued ID or license and a Massachusetts Commission for the Blind ID Card. Out-of-state visitors may also be eligible if they can provide appropriate documentation from their home state.
- Visit the CharlieCard Store in Downtown Crossing and present these identification documents.
- If eligible, you’ll be issued a temporary CharlieCard or CharlieTicket immediately.
- A permanent Blind Access CharlieCard will be mailed to your home in 7-10 business days.
