The MBTA announced that starting tomorrow and through May 31, riders can get between Lynn and North Station for the same price as a subway fare: $2.40 a ride.
In an effort to provide additional social distancing measures as well as ease crowding onboard both area bus routes and the Blue Line, this temporary Zone 1A fare provides another travel option for riders that typically transfer to the Blue Line at Wonderland Station and additional North Shore customers affected by the temporary Blue Line shutdown who travel to and from Downtown Boston. This fare effort also allows the MBTA the opportunity to collect ridership data related to the effects of temporary fare changes on relieving crowding on bus routes and the Blue Line.
Riders who already have a CharlieCard or CharlieTicket can flash those at conductors, who will also continue to take monthly passes and mTickets.
