Public Transit

The T is the oldest subway in the United States and it continues to be the best way to get around Boston. Purchase a CharlieCard by the ride, the day, or the week. Each $2.00 ride comes with a free transfer to a local bus. Boston proper is invitingly walkable, but if you’re determined to drive, prepare for expensive parking the closer you get to Downtown.
