The MBTA Boston Reviews
Riding the T Mar 25, 2010
There are many ways to get around the city of Boston. The most convenient method is riding Boston's T system.
The commuter or purple line as referred to buy some is mainly for business commuters who live beyond the suburbs of Boston.
The bus and the subway are a perfect alternative to walking or taking a cab. The Subway consists of the Green, Red, Blue, Orange, and the more recent Silver lines.
If you plan on riding the T to or from Logan airport examine your luggage. The T is a cheaper alternative to a taxi; however keep in mind that you will have to drag your luggage up and down stairs and through crowds of people. Smaller bags are best when choosing the T.
Make sure you choose the right Charlie pass. The Charlie Pass for the subway is not the same pass for the bus or the commuter line.
Also everything is either "inbound" or "outbound". Make sure to check the ending points of the line you are riding to orient yourself on which direction to travel in.
