    If you're heading to South Station from here, exit train platform and thru waiting area to left, down a few stairs, outside and then head to T station to the right. Not the easiest trip.

    Whoever thought to put a train terminal in a sports arena should have lost their job.

    have to go outside to get from the T to the commuter? seems silly...

    Very cool place to see. Also home to TD Garden, home of the Bruins and Celtics. If you have time before your train, you can even go peruse the team store!

    North Station sits under the TD Garden sports arena where both the Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics play.

    They have redbox here. It's also a decent spot to catch the green line to Fenway from the orange line.

    Train to Maine!

    If you play ingress there are two portals here :)

    Clean and tidy.

    Several pillars in the concourse area have power outlets. Handy for dead cell phone batteries!

    They have free shuttles running when the train from north station to Lechmere is broken

  • Cat O.

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

    And never ever get an ice cream from the central booth- so disgusting I threw mine out

    Rue Roberts · March 12, 2014

    Train can stay at the station 20 minutes late on a game night so be warned

    Green line is horrible, so slow!

    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.

    Announcements and signs aren't always correct. Ask your conductor where you're going first.

    Theresa Doyon · August 13, 2013
  • Janel A.

    Don't expect a timely train to Lechmere!

    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.

    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.

    Always smells like poop.

    If you are shopping at Haymarket, make change here

    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.

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

    Angelica Hahn · February 14, 2013
  • A.P. Blake

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

    A.P. Blake · February 7, 2013
  • Vanessa M.

    Smells like eggs -_-

  • Alison H.

    I want to know how people know which train to get on before they announce it.

    Alison Hunt · November 29, 2012
  • 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
  • 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.

    Karalyn Bere · October 7, 2012
  • Rachel

    Don't ever count on the Lowell train being on time.. Ever. Always the last to be called and last to board especially during rush hour!!!

    If you're a high school student, there is a discount if you show ID

    They need more times during the weekend, there's nothing between 5:50pm & 8:30pm. It would help out A LOT!

    Caroline Crean · September 3, 2012
  • Anthony D.

    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...

    Anthony DeLuise · August 24, 2012
  • Alaina S.

    It is impossible to get a Lechmere train after 9 am. 4/5 times, its faster to walk.

    Alaina Spaziani · August 21, 2012
  • Kristina

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

    Kristina · August 14, 2012
  • Sir S.

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

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

    Alymay A. · June 4, 2012
  • Sandra A.

    By your ticket at North Station before boarding your train. You will be charged a an extra dollar or two if you buy it on the train.

    Sandra Ahern · June 4, 2012

    Try the Citrus Cooler at Emack & Bolio's It's amazing! You can never go wrong with a chocolate covered oreo either (:

    Sandra Ahern · 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
  • Olivia S.

    Catch an early train to north station if there's a game. The trains take longer to leave stops and you'll miss your commuter rail train.

    Olivia Smith · May 18, 2012
  • B M.

    When taking the green line to catch your commuter train, leave 30 min earlier than you think you need. I've waited @ MFA stop for almost 20 min & then had the train break down. That = missed train.

    B M · May 3, 2012
  • Glen W.

    Who knew that they encourage nudism on the Downeaster train.

    Glen Wilkinson · April 20, 2012
  • Eileen O.

    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
  • Kim H.

    Don't even try on Game Nights. It is way too crowded. Remember to put on your angry face, too.

    Kim Ho · March 29, 2012
  • Lizzie S.

    Don't go on night s when the Celtics and bruins get out..tons of drunk and loud ppl

    Lizzie Stokes · March 25, 2012
