BOSTON — The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s contract operator of commuter rail service, Keolis, has announced the return of weekend CapeFLYERservice between Boston and Cape Cod. The seasonal service will begin its 10th summer of operation on Friday, May 29, and will operate through Labor Day weekend.

The service is a partnership of the MBTA, Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority, and Massachusetts Department of Transportation. Cape Cod ferry operator Hy-Line is also coordinating its schedule, with its final boat to Nantucket leaving at 8:40 p.m. to accommodate the CapeFLYER’s 8:20 p.m. arrival.

Round-trip tickets are $40, with a special $20 round-trip ticket for same-day travel on Sundays.

More information is available at the CapeFLYER website.

  1. Apparently Keolis either retained, or can hire and train enough, crews to expand their services, but not Amtrak?

  2. Except that May 29 is a Sunday not Friday. If you’re planning to ride you better call first.
