Fairmount Line Weekday Service Pilot
A year-long pilot of additional Fairmount Line weekday trips will begin soon. The launch of this pilot—originally scheduled for May 2020—is subject to COVID-19 developments and the resumption of normal service levels.
The Fairmount Line pilot aims to create a positive impact on transit equity and improve riders’ access to opportunities.
Service will include 8 additional weekday trips between Readville and South Station, with CharlieCard use available at Zone 1A stations along the line. Times for the additional trips are being selected in coordination with the city of Boston.

Use Your CharlieCard to Pay
- South Station
- Uphams Corner
- Four Corners/Geneva
- Talbot Ave
- Morton St
- Blue Hill Ave
All CharlieCards can be used at these stations, including those loaded with stored value, monthly and daily passes, and reduced fare passes. Riders can tap their CharlieCards at the platform validators to get a receipt to show on board.
Fairmount Line riders who pay with a CharlieCard can transfer for free, within 2 hours of their first tap, to any of the following:
- Red Line at South Station
- Silver Line
- Local Bus
Riders transferring from buses to the Fairmount Line at any Zone 1A station will pay only the difference in fare when they tap a platform validator with their CharlieCard.
Further service details will be available soon. Check back here for more information.
