The MBTA reported that CapeFlyer carried 1,035 passengers from the Boston area to Cape Cod and the Islands over Memorial Day weekend, which is a 28 percent increase over the ridership from the same weekend last year.

 

 

"We're off to a terrific start," said MBTA General Manager Beverly Scott. "The numbers prove what we've often repeated. When you provide travelers with an affordable and convenient alternative to the automobile, they will jump on it."

 

During its inaugural year of 2013, the seasonal train carried over 17,000 passengers and brought in over $290,000 in revenue, according to the T.
