CapeFLYER - Train service from Boston to Hyannis
CapeFLYER — is a Boston to Cape Cod weekend passenger train service that’s set to run Memorial Day through Labor Day (on Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays).
With on-board concessions, free Wi-Fi, wheelchair accessibility, and the opportunity to bring your bike aboard (for free!), the CapeFLYER is an exciting new connection for city-goers and coastal adventurers.
Building on its successful two years of operations, the CapeFLYER is excited to announce that trains will again be running from Boston to Cape Cod starting on Memorial Day weekend. Specifically, service will begin Memorial Day Weekend and operate on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout until Labor Day.
Additionally, the CapeFLYER has developed two new operational improvements that will significantly enhance the customer's experience and open a new market for potential riders. First, the CapeFLYER will operate on a faster Friday night schedule. Rather than piggy-back on to an existing commuter rail run, the CapeFLYER will be its own dedicated train on Friday nights leaving South Station at 5:50 PM, allowing more time for passengers to catch the train and making limited stops to Hyannis arriving at 8:15 PM. Second, all CapeFLYER trains will stop in Brockton this year. This will provide an improved connection to a large city of almost 100,000 people located just off Route 24.
In addition to a convenient trip to Cape Cod, the CapeFLYER works closely with the ferry operators to provide convenient connections to and from Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. Cape Cod RTA buses are available at Buzzards Bay and Hyannis to bring passengers to the Cape communities. Finally, the CapeFLYER will again operate a caf?? car that sells excellent food and drinks, including beer and wine, provided by Blonde on the Run Catering.
The CapeFLYER is a unique partnership between the Massachusetts Department of Transportation, the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority and the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority.

Once you’ve arrived in Hyannis, accessibility to the Cape’s many other areas is certainly in place. You can hop aboard the Hyannis FREE Trolley, and access a number of the Cape’s ferry and bus services, connecting you to Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, or other areas like Harwich and Orleans.
