Boston is a compact city that is highly walkable and blessed with ample public transportation options. The MBTA operates buses, a system of underground subways and aboveground trolleys (known colloquially as ‘the T’), commuter rail lines and, even, water shuttles. Taxis are ubiquitous and reasonably priced.
If you’re looking to save money on your visit, consider eliminating a rental car from your budget. The heart of the city is a maze of one-way streets notorious for confusing even seasoned locals. And you wouldn’t want to miss the start of an event because you can’t find a parking space!
Private Shuttle Bus Service
The local organizing committee will offer a private shuttle bus system between the official hotels, the Championship Village (just steps away from the BCEC), and the TD Garden, for an additional fee. Find out how to purchase passes at boston2014.com/shuttle.
