Cape Cod Transportation

Kennedy Ryan | 7/19/2021 (updated 8/3/2021)

From planes, to trains, to ferries and buses...there are plenty of ways to travel to the Cape and Islands in style! With the summer season here, the traffic can get heavy throughout Cape Cod. By seeking an alternative mode of transportation you are able to avoid the traffic and add to your vacation experience.

The Cape Flyer

The Cape Flyer is a great option for traveling to the Cape on a weekend. In just over two hours, this train takes visitors from South Station in Boston to Hyannis with stops in Braintree, Brockton, Middleborough/Lakeville, Wareham Village, Buzzards Bay, and Bourne along the way. This comfortable train experience offers free Wi-Fi, wheelchair accessibility, and a snack bar on board. Visitors can also bring along their pet or bike for free. The train also offers breathtaking views along the way, such as a unique vantage point over the Cape Cod Canal. Looking to upgrade your experience? Be sure to check out their first class section for only $10 more. Reservations are not required, but be sure to purchase your tickets before the season ends on Labor Day, September 6th.
