Anyone wishing to travel from Boston by train to Nantucket must travel part-way by ferry.   Comfortable connections are provided between the Amtrak and MBTA train stations and the various Massachusetts ferry piers.  The cost of the connecting car and ferry services is included in your fare.  

Amtrak operates both Regional Trains (ST) and faster Acela trains (FT)--each type of train offers an upper (UC) and a lower (LC) class of service..  Passengers traveling to Nantucket from  Boston can choose between coach and Business Class on Regional Trains and between Business Class and First Class on Acela trains.  Boston passengers headed to Nantucket can also opt for unreserved coach class on MBTA local trains (COMM) or on Cape Flyer trains (CAPE).

NEW!!!   Now departures with all-reserved seats are available. You no longer need be concerned about standing room only on trains to the Cape.  Just look for the schedules marked "All Reserved Seats".

Service is now also available from Back Bay.
