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 station.
It's pretty good during the day but rush hour is a nightmare
Always a mess...try to know where to head when you walk off the train to avoid a headache
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
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.
Buy your CharlieCard at the office here (closes at 5pm). Very handy because it saves you $0.50 per ride!
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.
Downtown Crossing is so hot as it touches the very tip of Hell.
Warm pee smell YUM!
That popcorn stand can't possibly taste better than it smells...can it?
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.
Braintree train is now twice as more packed than the Ashmont. What the deuce.
There is a Macy's next door. Also, the Park Street station is 2 blocks away :)
If your taking the orange line dont make eye contact, most ppl r crazy on that line.
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.
Hold on to your belongings and don't make eye contact with anyone
Smells like pee everyday, all day
Keep your bags high up or next to you, the roaches are all over the place.
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
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.
It hasn't been said enough and probably never will be: it is fucking hot here. Crazy hot. Inexplicably hot.
Smells like crap
Busy on Tuesday Rushour
If you're heading to Alewife, get on the first few cars to be closest to the stairs & exit.
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.
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
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!
No ac while waiting in the summer. It's stifling!
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.
Last train is 12:50am. Last call T-riders!
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.
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.
Sorry, meant Franklin St. or Temple Place
The Winter St and Temple Place entrances put you on the far ends of the platform where it's usually less crowded.
If you're taking the Orange Line to Oak Grove get on the last car--it's closest to the exit
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!
Bring a fan...its hot down here!
Still filthy... Yep Braintree to Ashmont Ratio still 3:1... Yep!
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
You can walk get to park street station through an underground concourse. Use this to transfer from orange to green and visa-versa
Tomem muito cuidado nesta estação pois é nesta que todas as linhas se cruzam, causando um movimento imenso em determinados horários! Cuidado com bolsas e pertences
Si vas hasta Forest Hills, siéntate en el último vagón
