We call it the T but it stands for MBTA public transportation system. It’s safe, easy to use, and a quick way to get around Boston. There are several T stops along the Freedom Trail. www.mbta.com

By Commuter Rail
If you are staying in a suburb of Boston, we recommend parking at a commuter rail stop and taking the train into North Station, Back Bay Station, or South Station. From there take the subway to points along the Trail. http://www.mbta.com/schedules_and_maps/rail/

By Commuter Boat
If you are coming from the South, you can travel into the city quickly by boat. Boats to Charlestown Navy Yard make round trips all day long departing from Lovejoy Wharf and Long Wharf, just steps off the Trail. http://www.mbta.com/
