    The Type 7 green line cars (split windshield) are fare more comfortable to ride in. You side facing front or backwards instead of facing away from the windows. Easier to see your stop as well.

    The train station, after being closed over a year for restoration, looks beautiful. Glass ceilings, clean interiors, well ventilated - one of the best T stops in Boston.

    Try and ride the Type 7 cars (Split windshield) its easier to sit facing forward or backwards instead of sideways like on the Breda cars.

    Don't forget to Tip your local musicians in The T stations, including this Sammy Davis Jr WannaBe. @MBTAgm Dude just sings over top boombox!

    Trains were on-time, and got me to my destination quickly. Cars are clean, and I felt safe. Great way to get around when your feet are tired.

    It's great that there is a dunkin in the station but it's more expensive because of its convenience. You can go to the one just upstairs for cheaper dunkin!

    Wear earplugs and mosquito protection. Or, jet out of there on the first train you can find and transfer at a better ventilated, less grindingly squealing station

    If you need the E line, it's usually better to pick it up at Gov Center than Park St (also more likely to get a seat).

    Waiting for a D train back to Riverside, watch inbound trains. D's turn here, others @ Lechmere. D's are labeled G center or Riverside. Sometimes they turn at Park, so wait 3-4 trains then go2 Park.

    Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after using public transportation. Especially during flu season. There’s a way to stay well.

    If you're looking to continue to North Station or beyond, wait at the front end of the tracks.

    Love the beta train board on the blue line right downstairs. Can see where all the trains are on the line & approximate wait time. Wish this was everywhere!

    Leave plenty of time to catch a green line train to North Station. Most (if not all) trains stop here as the last stop.

    Only the C and E trains go to North Station and beyond, the others stop here; so stop reading your copy of Twilight and get off the train....

    When taking the escalator up to ground level, keep moving. This particular escalator is too slim for two to fit side by side.

    A fine place to wait for your train. Many trains switch here.

    when you are waiting for the B or C to switch at Park Street... it's the E line that slowly arrives at the platform which has always failed me when i have to catch the approaching Red Line train.

    Going inbound? Take any train to Park Street and switch there or you might wait a long time before your train shows up.

    Instead of waiting for your green line train, take any train to Arlington and wait there. Way cleaner and not nearly as loud.
