Seniors Invited to Apply for MBTA CharlieCards at Local Event


State Sen. Will Brownsberger announced he will sponsor a Senior CharlieCard Day on Monday, June 26 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Beech Street Center, located at 266 Beech Street in Belmont.

Seniors age 65 or older can save a trip to the MBTA offices in Downtown Boston and apply for a Senior CharlieCard at this event. Staff from the Office of Senator Brownsberger will be on hand to take photos and process applications, which will be provided. Seniors will just need to bring a valid, state-issued photo ID that includes date of birth. No advance sign-up required. Senior CharlieCards will be sent to applicants by mail and may take six to eight weeks to process.

Senior CharlieCards may be used to receive reduced fares on all MBTA transportation services–including buses, subway, commuter rail, and the Salem-to-Boston ferry – in addition to discounted monthly passes, which are good for unlimited local bus and subway travel. More information about reduced senior fares can be found online at

If you currently have a Senior CharlieCard that is about to expire and you need to renew it, you do not need to come to this event. Senior CharlieCards can be renewed for free over the phone by calling the MBTA at 617-222-3200. Your renewed card will be sent by mail. If your Senior CharlieCard has already expired or you have lost it, then you may reapply in person at this event or call the MBTA office.
