More Frequent Service on the Fairmount Commuter Rail Line

Effective Monday, June 22, eight additional trains will be running on weekdays on the Fairmount Commuter Rail Line. The MBTA will begin the Fairmount Line Weekday Service Pilot on June 22, resulting in increased weekday train frequency and also allowing customers to pay fares with CharlieCards on Zone 1A stations along that line. The additional trains include four inbound leaving Readville Station at 5:10 AM, 9:25 AM, 3:05 PM, and 3:53 PM as well as four outbound leaving South Station at 7:35 AM, 9:15 AM, 6:50 PM, and 12:00 AM – will be added to the Fairmount Line as part of a 12-month service pilot aimed at providing more options for faster service. This additional Fairmount service was created through Fairmount train schedule efficiencies. Scheduled service on other commuter rail lines is not impacted. Full service schedules are available at
