The CapeFLYER, the seasonal train service from Boston to Hyannis, today announced a new partnership with Uber to help create more seamless travel for Cape Cod residents and visitors throughout the summer. Thousands of people visit cities and communities throughout the Cape every summer with limited transportation options, especially for those traveling via train and plane who do not have personal cars.
CapeFLYER, which was designed and launched as a solution to reduce traffic and congestion on Cape Cod is excited to announce an innovative partnership that will help connect thousands of CapeFLYER riders to a safe and convenient transportation option. CapeFLYER customers will be able to use the Uber app to request a ride at the Buzzards Bay or Hyannis stations as their train arrives to bring them to their Cape Cod destination. Uber will offer CapeFLYER customers with a promotion code, CAPEFLYER, for a free first ride up to $25 for new riders on the Cape.
The CapeFLYER was always intended as a service to get people to visit the Cape without adding to the congestion on the roads with more cars. Working with Uber, we can create more seamless connectivity around the Cape so that visitors do not need to rely on a car once they get here either,” said Cape Cod Regional Transit Administrator, Thomas Cahir.
“For over 4 years, Uber has been connecting Boston area residents to their local transit stop and beyond,” said Chris Taylor, Uber Boston General Manager. “We are excited to work with CapeFLYER to help connect more Cape Cod residents and visitors to a safe, reliable and affordable transportation options at the tap of a button. With Uber, CapeFLYER riders don’t need to worry about parking or driving, making for more seamless and safe travel on the Cape.”
