Exact fares must be paid at the time of boarding, as the driver will not make change. Over payment greater than $1 will produce a change card from the fare box.

Fare media can be purchased at the terminals from a Ticket Vending Machine or from a ticket agent. Acceptable forms of payment are: cash, debit or credit.

For your protection, Charlie Cards should be registered at the MBTA website. Registering your Charlie Card will help preserve cash value only. Pass products unfortunately will be lost.

Tickets are not refundable and lost, stolen or damaged tickets cannot be replaced. Lost, stolen or damaged Charlie Cards should be reported immediately to preserve as much value as possible. Riders are responsible for fares while lost, stolen or damaged Charlie Card issues are resolved.
