    Trams/Tube

    by kentishgirl Updated Nov 3, 2004

    I think they called in the Subway?? but parts of it that we travelled on were like trams.

    It is a very cheap means of transportation and real quick too.

    Boston is relativley small and easy to walk around also.

    South Station

    by Jozzzef Written Mar 30, 2004

    This is a very nice and clean station. Bus (greyhound,...) train and metrostation all in one. The bus station is brand new and has a nice little foodcourt. The trainstation also is very nice with a larger food court. It lies near the centre (not worth a detour though). Luggage can be stored at the BUSstation but it is complicated so your better ask someone there (i asked someone in the trainstation and they had no idea?!). There is regural bus service to NYC and a bus to Maine (destination Bangor/Bar harbor) once or twice a day.

    why go on Car rental if you have friends willing to take you around the famous sights of boston hehehe. Since I was here for 1 week, 2 of these were with my friends as I have informed them far in advance of my arrival so that they can take a day or two off from work and tour me around some of the attractions of Boston and Cambridge and the rest of the days, I did with the boston Trolley tours. and the best deal here is that they would even treat you out for the meals.

    When it was too late for the "T" and the car was in the parking lot, the only available transport Tamir could find was Chris ;-))
    Well... that's what friends are for

    A carriage ride looks like a pleasant way to get around Boston. This photo is in front of the Black Rose pub.

    There are many modes of transportation to get to Boston. For instance you can fly into Boston's Logan airport, you take a bus, you can drive, or you can even take a boat like one of these.

    Zakim Bridge

    by TempNomad Written Jan 8, 2004

    Make sure to drive over the Zakim/Bunker Hill bridge...it's pretty cool. It looks nice in the rain, even. At night it's lit up wonderfully, and during the day you can admire its lines.

There's one simple rule for driving in Boston:  Don't do it.  The traffic and helter-skelter street pattern confounds even the locals.  The good news is, the city is very...
