PROVIDES AN EASY CONNECTION FROM BACK BAY’S HOTELS & RESTAURANTS TO LOGAN AIRPORT & THE CONVENTION CENTER

Continuing its commitment to provide customers with viable transportation options, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority today kicked off a campaign promoting the convenient, five-minute commute from Back Bay Station to South Station. At no cost, commuters and visitors alike can take advantage of boarding a commuter rail train at Back Bay Station and travel one stop to the Financial District. At South Station, riders may also access Silver Line connections to the South Boston Waterfront, the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center and Logan Airport.

“The T’s priority is to provide customers and visitors to Boston with easy transportation choices,” said MBTA General Manager Daniel A. Grabauskas. “We are encouraging riders from the Back Bay to take advantage of the quickest way to get across town. We are promoting a five-minute ride to some of Boston’s top destinations.”

To promote this public transit option, the MBTA has partnered with Back Bay hotels to provide visitors with information. Starting today, the MBTA will display information on the Orange and Red Lines, and schedules will be available at Back Bay Station. The MBTA provides 85 weekday and 60 weekend departures from Back Bay to South Station.
