    this place is useful if you want to ride trains.

    Can't standing waiting another 30 mins for the Lechmere train? Download OpenMBTA app for free on your iPhone. At least you'll know exactly how screwed you are.

    Don't count on the train ever being on time

    The Bruins live upstairs...

    Orange line gets busy at peak hours but peoples conversations are always worth listening to as long as you don't get caught.

    Don't bother looking for help from an MBTA employee, because they don't want to help you.

    It smells. Always.

    The bartenders at Makers Mark Crossing basically suck

    Stay in the terminal until your train is called on the PA...it's courteous to everyone, plus you won't board the wrong train!

    it's better to take the orange line if u can because the green line takes forever! train to lechmere is the worst, waited for at least 20 minutes!

    Learn your conductors they can tip off your train a few minutes early since they usually have the same train each day.

    Don't give money to the peddlers...they don't need money for a train to visit grandma or a halfway house. They need to come up with better stories.

    Whoever makes the announcements here sounds exactly like Denzel Washington

    Don't order food or drinks from the Dunkin Donuts next to mcdonalds, order it from the one nearest the platform. the one in the back is gross.

    Taking a commuter train? Buy before you board or pay a hefty surcharge.

    There's a major sports arena upstairs!

    Makers mark bar in north station makes for a good way to pass time

    Amos Rollins · March 6, 2010
  • Charlene M.

    Sometimes it seems that the east entrance is less crowded with rabid sports fans during a sports event. Good th know if you are rushing to catch a train.

  • Jeffrey P.

    If you're fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to take the last train, order a slice from Crazy Dough's Pizza - if it's late enough they'll give you 2 or 3 for the price of 1.

    Jeffrey Porzio · October 4, 2013
  • Angelica H.

    Always have something to cover your nose because the smell is nauseating.

    Angelica Hahn · February 14, 2013
  • Karalyn B.

    Watch out. Apparently trains here are on time. If you're familiar at all with the MBTA system you never would have guessed there was an exception to the rule.

    Don't be late

    The ice cream at emack & bolio's is underwhelming

    This is clearly the check in for the subway station. For the commuter rail, check in to the TD Garden or a platform.

    Avoid using a typical-looking laptop case. Put your laptop in a generic case could help protect you from being the victim of computer theft. Keep your holidays jolly by concealing your computer.

  • Eric O.

    If you're heading upstairs to TD Garden for an event, make sure you pre-pay for your ride home on your way up. Having to fight your way to a Charlie Card machine after the game can be frustrating.

  • Sir S.

    Don't wait until the last day of the month to buy your monthly pass! The line gets VERY long.

  • Alymay S.

    If you need a D or B train, sometimes it's faster to walk to gov't center.

    Alymay S. · June 4, 2012
  • Andy C.

    Get there at least 10 mins before your scheduled train - that's about when they start boarding.

    Andy Cataluna · May 30, 2012
  • Vicki H.

    I hate taking the night-time trains home! They have 5 cars but make everyone squeeze into 2!!!

    Vicki H · May 25, 2012
  • Lisa R.

    If a driver sees you running for the train, they are likely to close the doors and not let you on. On the plus side, there's a Redbox.

    Lisa Roberts · February 2, 2012
  • Benjamin S.

    If you're in a hurry, use the self service ticket machine. People behind the window are slow sometimes.

    Benjamin Smith · October 22, 2011

    Try the fish.

    Eric Fields · October 13, 2011
  • Mike T.

    Green line trains are slow and unreliable but at least you don't get pissy female T employees constantly screaming at people to get on the train and to use all doors.

    Mike Tremblay · June 7, 2011
  • Liz R.

    They have finally started announcing delays for the 5:25 to rockport. Don't forget to high five the clover plaque.

    Liz R · February 3, 2011
  • Jennie M.

    Crazy doughs opening soon. Finally, good food in north station.

    If you are just hanging around or need wifi, check out equal exchange cafe.

    Mario Olivio Flores · June 29, 2010
  • Michael S.

    There's only one quicktrack Amtrak ticket kiosk that I could find so leave plenty of time!

    Michael Silberman · March 8, 2010
  • Cat O.

    2 shots of whiskey before boarding, and NEVER be in the car with the ankle-biters. Total buzz kill.

    Cat O'Nine · April 23
  • Tyson G.

    Hungry? Ignore Pizza, McDonald's and Dunkin. Go to the Bier Garden on East Side of station and get a sandwich at the Stonyfield Cafe kiosk. FRESH and HEALTHY and yummy.

    Tyson Goodridge · June 27, 2013

    Only Amtrak Downeaster trains to New Hampshire and Maine arrive and depart from Boston North Station. All other Amtrak services in Boston depart from South Station and Back Bay Station.

    Onur Özgün · February 16, 2013
  • John B.

    This is a great station to make train connections like the Lowell line and the Amtrak downeaster to Portland maine

    John Bunker · October 17, 2012

    In case you need more than one Dunkin' Donuts while you wait for your train, you're in luck! There are two, within approximately 200 ft and eyeshot of one another...

    On the commuter trains, sit by the window of the three-seater. 2nd person sits by the aisle, leaving lots of room in between you both.

    Eileen O · April 12, 2012
  • Piarda R.

    Make sure you give Tom a hug before you catch your train! :-)

    Stop by the popcorn stand...good popcorn and the guy is wicked nice.

    I'm pretty sure that the guy that hands out the metro newspapers related to Kat Williams
