The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, or the T as it’s commonly known, is the public operator of most bus, subway, commuter rail and ferry routes in the greater Boston, Massachusetts area. The lines are color coded (red, green, blue, silver, orange) and are fairly easy to navigate. Besides knowing what street you want to get to, know that outbound means away from Boston and inbound means…well you get it. The subway travels both above and below ground so one minute you can be in a tunnel and the next you pop up crossing a bridge.
The cost is $2.50 a one way ticket, which includes getting off and transferring to another line if needed, or you can buy as much as you think you will need for your travels or a one day pass like we did when we went from the Back Bay area, around Cambridge and back again. Unless you really know your way around Boston and wish to drive, this is the easier and less expensive way to get around. Trust me, downtown Boston traffic can get messy and let’s not even talk about where to park and what that can cost!
By the way…is it street photography if it’s under the street? 🙂
A rail system is a must for any modern city. Boston’s sounds like it’s a good one. Thanks, Teri, for the info & shots.
It is a good one at least to this newbie it was. DH was used to it having lived there before.
We had one of the best vacations ever here in Boston…and loved the MBTA….so easy.
I so want to go back there was so much more to see that we didn’t have time for but we did get out of Boston one day and that was on the train.
Cool shots Teri. I imagine it was not easy to keep from attracting attention on the subway train in order to get those photos!
I still have to learn how to do it on the sly but no one really paid me any attention while snapping away…cautiously.
