Go Green with Purple

Did you know that 2/3 of carbon emissions in Massachusetts come from personal vehicle use? Swap your next car drive for a Commuter Rail ride and help reduce emissions.  Compared to your personal vehicle, Commuter Rail is:

✔️♻️ Greener

Taking the train takes cars off the road and reduces your fuel dependency.

✔️🚆 Faster

Taking the train allows you to skip traffic and avoid finding parking in Boston. Also, in many cases, the train is the more direct route into the city. So far in 2022, our OTP is XX. Plus, Commuter Rail now has a more consistent all-day service, 7 days a week.

✔️ 📱 Smarter
We have a new 5-Day Flex Pass that allows you to save 10% on five round-trip tickets. It’s available for purchase on mTicket only and perfect for a hybrid work schedule.

So next time you have to drive somewhere, see if you can use public transit instead and Go Green with Purple!
