Multi-Ride Tickets

Multi-Ride Tickets, which allow you to take multiple trips using one ticket within a set amount of time, are available on many of our short-distance routes.

Monthly Ticket
The monthly ticket is valid for unlimited travel between the origin and destination stations you select, and all stations in between, for an entire calendar month.

Six-Ride Ticket
The six-ride Downeaster College Pass (for students only with college/university ID) is valid for a 365-day period on Downeaster trains between Boston - North Station, MA and Brunswick, ME.

Ten-Ride Ticket
The ten-ride ticket is valid for ten rides within a 45-day, 60-day or 180-day period depending on your origin and destination stations.
