 How do I pay?

CharlieCards or CharlieTickets are the best options for paying fares. See Green Needham’s Charlie Card/Charlie Ticket page for more information on how to get them. Cash on board is accepted on buses, however it will hold up the line. If using cash, try to use exact change. If you overpay by less than 50 cents you will not get change back.
