Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority expands on-demand ride service, offers new CapeFlyer features 

Summer on Cape Cod is in full swing, and the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority is busy working to provide residents and visitors with transit options across the region. In addition to its network of fixed-route buses that serve major roadways across Cape Cod, the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority is rolling out an enhanced on-demand ride-hail service known as SmartDart, beginning its expanded summer fixed route schedules, and welcoming the CapeFlyer summer train for its 11th season.

On June 24, the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority (CCRTA) will begin its enhanced SmartDart service now serving all 15 Cape towns. SmartDart is an app-based, on-demand, door-to-door ride-hail servicethat offers shared rides, offered at just $3.00, on a first-come, first-served basis. Customers can utilize the low-cost SmartDART for quick in-town trips or to connect to any of the CCRTA’s fixed-route buses. Visit for details and to download the app.

“We are thrilled to continue expanding our services and geographic reach. The SmartDART service offers an affordable, safe and convenient opportunity to navigate your respective town and/or connect with our Fixed Route lines. With this new micro transit initiative, we are able to reach the entirety of Cape Cod with CCRTA service,” said CCRTA Administrator Thomas Cahir.

The CapeFlyer summer train between Boston and Cape Cod is back for its 11th season. With six stops in between Boston’s South Station and Hyannis, the CapeFlyer provides a way for day-trippers to visit Cape Cod. Visitors may also take a shuttle to the ferries for a visit to Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket. New this year, the CapeFlyer offers a first-class car with amenities that include large leather reclining seats with footrests and tray tables.
