Alternative Travel Options for Riders:
Riders commuting to downtown are encouraged to use the Commuter Rail. Zone 1A, 1, and 2 fares can be paid simply by showing a CharlieCard or CharlieTicket on ALL Commuter Rail lines.
Most Needham and Providence Line Commuter Rail trains will stop at Forest Hills, Ruggles, Back Bay, and South Station.
Haverhill Line Commuter Rail trains will stop at Oak Grove, Malden Center, and North Station.
Riders can use other existing MBTA bus and subway services to complete their trips.
Shuttle bus service will operate in both directions, connecting Oak Grove and Forest Hills stations to downtown Boston. The MBTA is currently discussing options with the City of Boston for how to best service the downtown area.
