Boston public transportation, known as The T, is quite good. Short term T passes, called "Boston Passports", are available.
A one-day Passport costs $5.00 A three-day Passport costs $9.00 A seven-day Passport costs $18.00. Each Passport allows unlimited use of all subway lines, including surface Green Line branches, plus MBTA buses up to $1.70 fare (additional fare, if any, payable in cash), and commuter rail zones 1A and 1B - the same as a Combo Plus monthly pass. With the Passport you can also get discounts at some tourist attractions and restaurants. It is a good way to test-ride the T. Boston Passorts are sold at North Station, South Station, and Back Bay Station; at Airport, Government Center, Harvard Square, and Riverside MBTA stations; at visitor information centers on Boston Common, in Quincy Market, and at several hotels and newsstands.You may want to get a Passport if you want to do any touring, or if you are staying at the Copley Plaza or possibly the Brookline Holiday Inn. If you let us know by April 10, we can pick one up for you to give you at registration time.
