SOME GENERAL TIPS
Welcome to New England where weather changes like…the weather! Rain and snow can impact travel times for all major roads and public transportation systems. Plan ahead and allow yourself additional time.
Expect higher estimated travel times when travel during rush hour. Choose to ride the subway (“The T”) to avoid delay. Rush hour can vary, but typical times are from 7:30am - 9.30am and 4:00pm- 7:00pm (07:30-09:30 and 16:00-19:00).
Taxi Cabs are metered and can be paid in cash, credit card or debit card (using the touch screen monitor). Tipping is at your discretion, but usually ranges from 15-20% of total charges. Boston is a city being built daily and with several new restaurants and hotels popping up it’s a smart idea to provide the complete address in addition to the name of your destination.
USING THE SUBWAY
The MBTA (affectionately known as the T) operates from 5 am to 12 am. There is a subway map on the back of your in-cabin guide. If you need extra or have any questions, stop by Mission Control or the Concierge desk and they’ll be able to help. Below are some pros/cons and advice for using the MBTA.
- The T can inexpensively and quickly connect you throughout Boston’s neighbourhoods while also eliminating the cost and hassle of parking.
- Charlie Cards can be purchased for extended services and additional savings.
- Children under 11 ride free when accompanied by a paying adult (up to 2 children per adult)
NOT SO GOOD…
- Rush hour commute times can be crowded.
- Severe weather can impact departure and travel times.
- As in any big city, always be aware of your belongings and be smart.
