Getting Around Boston

The Park Plaza is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Boston, and walking is a great way to get around!

Public transportation is plentiful in Boston and the major MBTA subway line ( the “T”) that serves the Park Plaza is the Green Line. The most convenient stop is Arlington Station, but you can easily walk to other MBTA lines from the Park Plaza.  Most major landmarks are accessible by the T. To download a MBTA map, click here. The closest Orange Line stop is Chinatown, for the Blue Line it is Government Center, and for the Red Line, Park Street.  If you are taking the Green Line outbound, please note that there are several lines, and each deviates after the Kenmore station.
