Most students agree that the T is extremely simple—it runs in color-coordinated lines around and outside of the city—and relatively inexpensive to ride—it costs a couple dollars and is even cheaper if you use a Charlie Card. Almost everything is a quick T ride away, and the campus is located along the Green B Line. The T runs like a trolley across BU campus and can therefore get really crowded on school days—there will be days when it feels like it’s 10 degrees below zero, you are late for a midterm, and three different Ts drive by before you are able to squeeze in—but it is usually the best mode of transportation to and from class. The T stops running at 12:30 a.m., which is far from convenient, but the “Night Owl” buses continue to run until 2 a.m. on the weekends. Reduced price passes are available each semester through BU at the student union. If you move off campus, it is a good idea to look for a place that is advertised as T-accessible. There are also free BU shuttles that travel to some of the more remote dorms. On the weekends, BU also offers a late-night shuttle service that runs until 4 a.m. Luckily, in a bind, there are always cabs.
Pedestrians, beware! The drivers in Massachusetts, and especially in Boston, are referred to across the country as “Massholes.” If you should come across an individual of this kind, run the other way. Overall, transportation in Boston is readily accessible and easy-to-use. You definitely do not need a car because it often proves to be more of a hassle than it is worth.
