Amtrak trains to Boston arrive at South Station. The Trailways and Greyhound terminals are across the street. Take the Red Line from South Station to Harvard Square.

The subway fare is $2.25/$2.75 (Charlie card or Charlie ticket required). For subway journeys from other starting points, see the MBTA subway map.
