Transportation

Please note, the Salem Ferry has concluded its season and will not be running during October 2020 and the MBTA Commuter Rail will not be stopping in Salem during certain hours the last two weekends of the month. Learn more here.

Due to COVID-19, if you are considering a visit to Salem this October and you do not have lodging booked or tickets or reservations purchased in advance, the City of Salem recommends that you postpone your visit until 2021. Special events planned for Salem Haunted Happening have been canceled due to the pandemic and all venues are working with limited occupancy and public health guidelines. Thanks for your help as we work to keep everyone  healthy and safe. We would love to see you another time.

Salem Haunted Happenings is easily accessible by public transportation! The Salem Ferry runs between Boston's Long Wharf and Blaney Street in Salem. Take the MBTA Commuter Rail from Boston's North Station or stops north of Salem on the Newburyport/Rockport lines. On busy October weekends, you can save time in traffic by parking at a nearby station (Lynn and Beverly are the closest) and taking the train downtown.
