Well-Connected Boston Transit System
The MBTA (Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority) operates subways, buses, commuter rails, and ferries. The “T” was the first subway built in the United States. Four lines run from the main downtown stations: red, blue, green, and orange. There also is a trolley line (the Mattapan). Getting around the city proper using public transit is a breeze.
Visit the MBTA website for information on getting and loading your Charlie Card to use public transit in and around Boston.
Commuting to Campus
If you decide to live outside of Wellesley, where Babson College is located, there are two ways to get to campus using public transportation, in addition to carpooling. Many students have their own cars and drive to campus, parking in the provided student lots.
Take the commuter rail to the Wellesley Hills Station. Then walk to Olin Hall (25-minute walk).
Take the Green Line (D Branch) to Woodland. Then grab a ride with CATCH Connect.
If you’d like to avoid public transit, you also can find peers who live near you and carpool together in their car or share an Uber or Lyft.
