Seniors (65+) with a Senior CharlieCard can ride local busses for 85 cents, subways for $1.10, inner express buses for $2.50, and outer express buses for $3.50.
Seniors can also travel on commuter rail or ferry services for 50 percent off the regular full fare. In addition, seniors can purchase a monthly pass, (good for unlimited travel on local buses and subways), for $30.
No discounts apply to express bus passes, commuter rail passes, or boat passes. Normally discounted rides and passes require a Senior CharlieCard available at the CharlieCard Store located in Downtown Crossing Station, (Underground Concourse), Boston.
However, on September 9 from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m., the Milton Council on Aging will provide the applications for you to fill out and Grace Buscher will take your photograph. She will then send all the information to the MBTA and you will be able to get your CharlieCard in the mail. Please call if you need a ride up to the Senior Center. Our thanks to Grace Buscher for offering this simpler way to get your CharlieCard.
