The MBTA operates the greater Boston public transportation system. The MBTA no longer uses tokens. The system now uses a plastic CharlieCard or paper CharlieTicket.
Information on special rates for Seniors and Disabled/Handicapped, higher fares which may apply to longer distances, Commuter Rail passes or single rides, MBTA Boat tickets and passes, and the purchase of annual passes can be obtained at many subway stations or from the website. At locations where purchasing a ticket is not possible, a commuter may be able to pay on the bus or train; a surcharge may apply.
