This summer, 13,278 people rode the train, bringing in $223,559 in revenue. Both figures are up slightly from last year’s ridership of 12,625 and revenue of $221,293.

CapeFlyer started weekend service between Boston and Cape Cod in 2013. Operating from Memorial Day to Labor Day, these trains provided an alternative to crowded highways and traffic tie-ups. On Fridays, the train leaves Boston in the early evenings and returns late at night, and on weekend days it leaves Boston in the morning and returns in the evening.
