    The 2018 Cape Flyer Season was successful with more riders than last year.  A proposed new station stop for next year should help increase ridership. Here's a link to the press release.

    Great to hear! I'm a little confused at what the quote about the temporary platform means though, and that it will cut 45-50 minutes off the trip?

    The train trip time will be the same as now except for an added stop. The time  "saved" refers to the time connecting buses  will save by staying on the Cape Cod side of the canal versus having to negotiate the  heavy weekend road traffic over the road bridge to reach various destinations  on the Cape itself. The road traffic backs up for miles on approach to the bridge to Cape Cod. The train only takes 5-10 minutes too cross the train bridge  to the proposed station location.
