Mention that you're a senior citizen when you make your travel reservations. Boston-area businesses offer many discounts to seniors with identification (a driver's license, passport, or other document that shows your date of birth). The cut-off age is usually 65. Restaurants, museums, and movie theaters may offer special deals. Restaurants and theaters usually offer discounts only at off-peak times, but museums and other attractions offer reduced rates -- usually the equivalent of the student price -- at all times.
With a special photo ID card, seniors can ride the MBTA subways, local and express buses, commuter rail, and Inner Harbor ferries at a discount. You must have a Senior CharlieCard. For more information, visit MBTA.com.
