The MBTA's Fare Transformation will make paying for transit easier and more convenient: You'll be able to tap and board at any door with a fare card, smartphone, or contactless credit card; reload using cash or credit card at vending machines at all stations and some bus stops; or go online to manage your account 24 hours a day.

Building a Better T

As part of our $8 billion, 5-year capital investment plan, we're renovating stations, modernizing fare collection systems, upgrading services for our buses, subways, and ferries, and improving the accessibility of the entire system.
