Students, Faculty, and Staff Commuter Benefits
The Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA) is one of the largest public transit systems in the country, making it easy to get around. Northeastern University’s Boston campus is directly served by the MBTA’s Orange and Green subway lines, and multiple bus lines. From downtown Boston, take the Green Line “E” train outbound to the Northeastern stop. The campus can also be reached from downtown via the Orange Line by taking any train going outbound to Forest Hills and getting off at Ruggles Station. Commuter rail lines also connect with the Orange Line train at Ruggles Station, Back Bay Station, and North Station. Additionally, the Ruggles Station third platform expansion project is expected to be completed in 2020. The project will enable more commuter rail trains to stop and provide direct service to Boston’s southern suburbs and the North Station and South Station transportation hubs.
Northeastern University offers students, faculty, and staff commuters extra benefits, making public transportation affordable and easy.
