Buses - make sure you've got change
Boston was an interesting commuter experience for us. The buses are common but make sure you've got change. No change is given. Just pop you coins in and ride.
Also it's always important to know which way you should be going. Our first bus ride we took from the wrong side of the road out to nowhere.

BY BUS OR TRAIN
BY BUS & TRAIN: you can take the GREYHOUND BUS or AMTRAK to Boston from other US destinations. Student discounts available for both options.
If you are coming from NYC, take a Chinatown bus (check Chinatown travel agencies) that will take you to Boston`s Chinatown. Buses are every 2 hrs or so, takes 4 hrs with 1 stop, and costs about $20.
Take the city bus! It costs 75...
Take the city bus! It costs 75 cents. It's safe, cheap and easy to use. It also comes frequently and generally on time. We stayed in Cambridge, so we'd take the bus from the Belmont region to Harvard Square. The unusual thing about the bus (especially if you're not expecting it) is that at Harvard Square, the bus stop is underground in the 'T' station. One moment you're on the regular city streets... the next moment the bus has gone underneath a tunnel and seems like it's driving through the subway tracks!! It was just weird being on a bus driving through its own designated subway tunnel.
