On busy October weekends, we recommend parking near a neighboring station (Beverly and Lynn are the closest – Follow MBTA Parking on Twitter for capacity updates) and taking the train downtown. Once you arrive in Salem, you’ll be within walking distance of all Haunted Happenings festivities. *(the Lynn train station is currently closed please see above schedule for availability)

Weekend visitors can take advantage of the $10 Commuter Rail Weekends pass, which provides unlimited travel on the Commuter Rail for just $10.00 every weekend. Passes are valid on all lines and zones, Saturdays and Sundays.
