Memorial Day weekend marks the beginning of CapeFLYER seasonal weekend trips
BOSTON – May 2, 2017 – The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) and Keolis Commuter Services announced today that the CapeFLYER weekend train service between Boston and Hyannis begins Memorial Day weekend. In partnership with the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority, this popular route provides residents in the greater Boston region with a convenient link to Cape Cod, its beaches and other seasonal activities.
“We look forward to providing this service for beach-goers and vacationers,” said David Scorey, CEO and General Manager, Keolis Commuter Services. “In its fifth year, the CapeFLYER helps emphasize that the Commuter Rail is not just for commuters and that there are many great destinations to explore at outlying points in the network.”
The CapeFLYER service begins at Boston’s South Station and stops in Braintree, Brockton, Middleboro, Wareham and Buzzards Bay, ending in Hyannis. A round-trip ticket from South Station to Hyannis is $40, and children 11 and under with a fare-paying adult ride free. Dogs and bikes are also welcome on board. Blonde on the Run Catering will operate a café car selling food, beverages, beer and wine.
The first train of the 2017 season departs Boston’s South Station Friday, May 26 at 5:50 p.m. Similar to past years, the CapeFLYER is free to active duty service members or veterans on Sunday, May 28 through a partnership with Cape Cod Cares for the Troops.
