All MBTA fares will be waived after 9:30 PM. The T will be free after 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 4, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority has announced.
That means that buses, trolleys, trains, and commuter rail will be no-cost for riders getting home from Independence Day festivities—or heading out to late evening ones given that July 5 falls on a Friday.
For most of the day July 4, the T will operate on a Sunday schedule; though subways will operate at rush-hour levels beginning at 2 p.m., the MBTA said. Commuter rail will operate on a Saturday schedule and the RIDE for those with physical challenges will operate on a Sunday schedule. Most ferries will operate on a Saturday schedule, with service on the F1 Hingham-Boston route canceled for July 4. MBTA parking facilities will operate as usual.
