Free Charlie Cards at the Everett Public Libraries

The Everett Public Libraries and the City of Everett are offering free MBTA Charlie Cards to citizens of Everett. They can be picked up at City Hall or the Parlin or Shute Memorial Libraries.

Why pick up a Charlie Card? During the orange line shutdown, they can be used for free trips in zones 1, 1a, and 2 on the commuter rail. Using a Charlie Card also means you’ll pay cheaper fares than you would with a Charlie Ticket.

NOTE: The free Charlie Cards do not have any monetary value. Users will need to load money on to them at an MBTA fare kiosk or online at mbta.com/fares/charliecard in order to ride the T or buses.
