MBTA Commuter Rail Sells Out in Just Hours for Taylor Swift Concert
The “Taylor Swift Effect” has hit New England. Not only is she selling out Gillette Stadium, but she is also selling out the commuter rail.
On Friday, the MBTA Commuter Rail announced the concert train tickets from Boston to Foxboro for all 3 of Swift’s shows were completely sold out on the mTicket app and in Boston stations, with no plans of adding a second train at this time.
Back in March, the MBTA announced a special train service for select Gillette stadium events from Boston and Providence, allowing eventgoers to avoid pesky Route 1. The train arrives one hour before the event starts and departs thirty minutes after the event ends. It only costs $20 and can be purchased online two weeks before each show.ththstth
Fans that weren’t as “swift” as others will have to pack up their cars and make the drive to Gillette, a task that some online users aren’t too thrilled about.
“This is an unmitigated disaster—though that’s par for the course for the T,” wrote one Twitter user. “Please add another train.”
“Unfortunately, at the moment we are not adding any more trains,” responded the MBTA. “We are sorry for the inconvenience.”
At least there is one silver lining. You may have to drive, but you can still win tickets to the show on Michael and Maddie. Download the Fun 107 app and enter to win.
