A beginner’s guide to riding the T

Paris has the Metro. New York has the subway. And Boston has the T…

Scared of the trains that honk at you while you’re trying to cross Commonwealth Ave? Never ridden the T? Our trusty guide Zack Poitras (CAS’08) will take you through the ins and outs of Boston’s mass transit system. From how much it costs and where you can go to all important safety and travel tips, this little guide will get you oriented and set you on your way. More detailed information, maps of the T, and bus schedules can be found on the MBTA’s Web site.

Poitras is a member of Slow Children at Play, a BU sketch comedy troupe which is holding auditions on September 23 at noon.
