    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.

    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 complain about the squealing wheels, its more enjoyable than most of the buskers...

    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.

    Hot as balls and constantly smells like hobo piss down here. Effin' gag.

    Don't stand near the mumbling homeless guy doing karaoke on the blue line platform.

    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.

    Prepare to wait and wait and wait for the Lechmere train. ANNOYING!!!!!

    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....

    I bet WD-40 could make a powerful advertisement making the awful grinding sounds go away. Kind of like the Febreeze ads.

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

    90% of the time, you'll get a D line train

    Rated the loudest MBTA station, by me.

    You're probably wondering why it's so hot underground. It's because you're in hell.

    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!

    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!

    It always smells like urine when you go down the stairs to the Blue Line. WTF, hobos.

    Tammy · May 3, 2012

    Stay away from tracks going inbound or wear ear plugs.. Those squeaky wheels of the trains are so annoying and bothering

    Well we've gotta lotta lotta lotta hard work today......

    Don't crowd into full trains, be a decent human being and wait for the next one please.

    These trains disappear! Like magic

    Kelly L · April 2, 2012

    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).

    Jamie Langowski · March 26, 2012

    East or West. Multiple green trains. Look for train destination by train letter.

    The guy who said D trains are a rarity is an idiot. It's D and E for miles!

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

    Get ready to sweat! It's always an inferno in here.

    Billy Lubanski · October 19, 2011

    Don't buy from the dunkies inside the station- all that train exhaust cannot be good for you on your doughnuts or in coffee. There is another dunkin right outside the station!

    Rebecca Wilkof · October 17, 2011
  • Sabrina M.

    Get on the very last cart if you are getting off here from Park st. Less foot traffic

    Govt center sucks ass for the blue line. Trains going to disappear coming from bowdoin headin to wonderland

    Kelly L · September 21, 2011
  • Brian P.

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

    Brian Palmer · September 16, 2011
  • Brian D.

    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!

    Brian DeVito · July 17, 2011

    Hate the green line

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

    Change here for the Blue and Green lines.

    Annie Mathew · May 5, 2011
  • Todd B.

    Avoid the greenline at all costs

    beware of the cockroaches on the blue line...them things are the size of my foot!

    Danielle Rallo · March 16, 2011

    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

    MBTA on weekends SUCKS!

    I get asked this from tourists- yes, the Lechmere train goes to North Station. North Station train does not go to Lechmere.

    Melissa Silva · January 20, 2011

    Anyone else in the world love the green line like I do?

    Adam Miller · January 10, 2011
