Day Tripper Dispatches

Transport Yourself on a Day Trip!

Take the Red Line to Harvard Square, hop the Blue Line to the Aquarium, take the Commuter Rail to Ipswich – or any number of trains or buses to Boston Common for an afternoon of skating at Frog Pond. A day of riding buses and trains can be a a great day trip in itself for many children, and an added bonus is that it’s also a great way to teach your kids about the environmental benefits of public transportation. There’s even the water taxi at Boston Harbor! A great site for determining how to get from point A to point B via train, bus, boat, or foot is HopStop. The site works for Boston – and New York, Washington D.C., San Francisco, and Chicago. The MBTA has a great site, too.

I agree! Taking the public transportation makes the trip extra exciting and an adventure! My 6 year old son loves taking the train!
