Downtown Crossing Station of the MBTA, located at the corner of Washington St and Summer St and the corner of Chauncey St and Summer St in Boston, is the main transfer point between the Orange Line and the Red Line. It is named after Downtown Crossing, the shopping area above the s...
You can walk get to park street station through an underground concourse. Use this to transfer from orange to green and visa-versa
If you're taking the Orange Line to Oak Grove get on the last car--it's closest to the exit
It hasn't been said enough and probably never will be: it is fucking hot here. Crazy hot. Inexplicably hot.
For speedy transfers between the Red/Orange lines, be in the front of Alewife trains, the center of Forest Hills trains, and the rear of Ashmont, Braintree, and Oak Grove trains.
Think a out what end of the track you need to get off at your destination... you have time to walk to the end of the platform when you're waiting!
Smells like crap
For people traveling to Wellington Station, towards Oak Grove, get on the first cart as it lets you off directly in front of the Wellington stairs to exit!
Last train is 12:50am. Last call T-riders!
Downtown Crossing is so hot as it touches the very tip of Hell.
This is a major hub for T riders; it has been known as "Washington" on the Red Line and "Summer and Winter" or "Washington Under" on the Orange Line, named for the streets above ground.
Switching from an Orange line Oak Grove train @ downtown xing to green/red line (Park st) is one of the most difficult times I've ever had as a MBTA rider. Station needs more follow-the-arrow signs.
Still filthy... Yep Braintree to Ashmont Ratio still 3:1... Yep!
If you're heading to Alewife, get on the first few cars to be closest to the stairs & exit.
If your taking the orange line dont make eye contact, most ppl r crazy on that line.
Stay alert when people decide to jump in front of you so they can hop on the train first while blocking passengers trying to come out - avoid rush hour!
Hold on to your belongings and don't make eye contact with anyone
No ac while waiting in the summer. It's stifling!
Warm pee smell YUM!
The Winter St and Temple Place entrances put you on the far ends of the platform where it's usually less crowded.
Red Line trains to Alewife typically show up at the same time as Orange Line trains to Forrest Hills. Please be considerate and don't go charging down the corridor - there will be another train soon e
I had to transfer to another location which I did not want to come this route. I saw like a ten pound rat at this T Station. Gross much?!?
Be courteous and either hold onto your trash or dispose onto a barrel. No one wants to be playing pong with your empty bottles.
Cold in the winter, hot as all hell in the summer. Lots of crazy people, like this guy in front of me. Smells bad full of rats and roaches, although I find it pretty easy to navigate.
That popcorn stand can't possibly taste better than it smells...can it?
There is a Macy's next door. Also, the Park Street station is 2 blocks away :)
If you are headed to stony brook or forest hills, get in the last car (closest to the redline stairs). Closer to the center of the train is better for most people headed to backbay and forest hills.
if u want the quickest way off the orange line heading 2 forest walk the entire length of the platform to the very end & get in the 1st car. it will be easier going to the main level of forest
if ur on the orange line heading 2 forest hills take the car at like the
If you are a fast walker, it is faster to take the tunnel to park st when switching from a forrest hills train to a alewife train. You can beat a train that you couldn't make at downtown xing.
Sorry, meant Franklin St. or Temple Place
Not sure what they are but there are a bunch of creepy doors in between dtc and parkst? Numbered like apps with spy holes on them
New musician - decent guitar player with hilarious lyrical yelling. On the forest hills platform
Not handicap accessible and rude employees who accuse you of fare evasion while trying to take elevators where you have to leave turnstiles and no one is there to let you back in
Buy your CharlieCard at the office here (closes at 5pm). Very handy because it saves you $0.50 per ride!
Braintree train is now twice as more packed than the Ashmont. What the deuce.
Smells like pee everyday, all day
Keep your bags high up or next to you, the roaches are all over the place.
Not like NY
Been taking the T for at least 15 years and this station still lacks more signs to direct me to the line I want to go. It's an underground maze.
Busy on Tuesday Rushour
Still hot as all hell, no AC even in 85 degree weather.
Beware downtown crossing station is one of most busiest area and watch out for crazed people
Restrooms are located in the connecting Macy's; right outside the Orange Inbound line. Men's are found on the lower level while women's are 2 stories higher on the 2nd floor.
Bring a fan...its hot down here!
Si vas hasta Forest Hills, siéntate en el último vagón
