Once you have arrived safely in the city and are ready to do some sightseeing you can choose from any of the different forms of public transport which includes the subyway (T), buses and commuter rail. The subway in Boston is one of the easiest in the world to find your way around and is the oldest in the USA. Consisting of the Red, Green, Blue and Orange Line, trains run between 5.30am and 12.30am and cost $1.
