Cape Flyer to Return for 7th Season This Weekend

The CapeFlyer arrives into the Hyannis station from South Station in Boston.

HYANNIS – The Cape Flyer seasonal rail service between Boston and Hyannis returns this weekend.

The first 2019 train is scheduled to depart Friday at 5:50 p.m. from Boston’s South Station.

“We have got a lot of new and exciting things this year,” says Tom Cahir, CCRTA Director.

“Like every year our staff works hard to come up with various schedules that align with events that occur during the 15 summer weekends here on Cape Cod.”

New for this year will be an added stop near the Bourne train bridge in an effort to make it easier for travelers to get to parts of Falmouth and Sandwich.

“We thought that if we stopped just on the other side on the train bridge, which is just across the Canal, there is a beautiful location where we can de-train and get into our bus, and get right down to Woods Hole much quicker, and get to the Upper Cape much more efficiently,” said Cahir.

“This is an exciting new change and we are very happy.”

The train will also continue to make routine stops in Braintree, Brockton, Middleborough, and Wareham.

Now entering their 7th year of service, the CapeFlyer has already generated thousands of dollars in local revenue, and has proven successful since its commission back in 2012.
