BOSTON – The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) has expanded its Commuter Rail Weekend pass to include all three days of holiday weekends. The first Monday included is the Memorial Day holiday on Monday, May 29.

The expansion is part of a six-month pilot program that expands the weekend pass program to include all three days of federal holiday weekends.

Holidays included in the pilot program are:

  • Memorial Day (May 29, 2023)
  • Juneteenth National Independence Day (June 19, 2023)
  • Independence Day (July 4, 2023)
  • Labor Day (September 4, 2023)
  • Columbus Day (October 9, 2023)

The cost of a Commuter Rail weekend pass is $10. Holidays observed mid-week will have $10 single-day passes available. Passes are valid on all Commuter Rail lines and zones except Special Event Trains to Gillette Stadium or on the Cape Flyer.

The MBTA launched its $10 Weekend Pass program in 2019. In 2022, the $10 weekend pass was 41 percent of all weekend fares.

Weekend passes are now available for purchase at ticket officers, on trains, or on the mTicket app available in the Apple App Store or on Google Play.
