    Not quite as depressing as I expected it to be...

    Rinaldo Dorman · August 11, 2014
  • Connor G.

    Be sure to use the elevator if you have a lot of luggage. Way better than the stairs.

    Connor Garrett · August 3, 2014

    Get here early tonight for Water Fire. To get a good place to park

    Michael Shaker · July 26, 2014
  • Tim S.

    Grab a coffee or latte at Cafe La France before boarding. Also grab a water here - cheaper than on board.

    Tim Seamans · March 3, 2014

    Thankyou to the train that takes my darling girl home safe - I hope she gets to sleep on the way back to the city

    Have cash for your commuter train tickets before you get here.

    Frederick Bernard Stewart · November 8, 2013
  • Ryan D.

    If it is cold out, don't go out to the platform until a few minutes before the train comes. No use freezing your buns off.

    Ryan Donnell · November 5, 2013
  • Hao T.

    Don't be a cash-only sucker waiting in line. Download the MBTA app and pay for your ticket with your credit card from your phone.

    Hao Tran · October 11, 2013
  • Antonio G.

    MBTA Commuter Rail double decker cars with a curved stairway have electrical outlets. Straight stairs means wifi is available. No cars have both outlets and wifi.

    Antonio Guimaraes · September 28, 2013

    So if you buy your tickets for the MBTA Commuter Rail at Cafe La France it's cash only however if you download the MBTA app you can pay with your credit card!

    Amtrak people are probably the most unpleasant people I've ever has the displeasure to interact with.

    Skip the unhealthy microwaved stuff you get on the train! Customize your Panini at Cafe La France and take it to go for your trip.

    kenny tse · May 7, 2013
  • Abhinav G.

    No need to buy ticket with cash or wait in line now. Use the MBTA iOS app and buy ticket with credit card on the go.

    Awesome old school flap display by Solari is still hanging on in the rotunda, transmitting the calming sound of train status updates... except when the update is that your train is late(r)

    Andrew Catauro · April 9, 2013
  • John G.

    Buy tickets at the cafe or on your phone for convenience. Plenty of trains to and from Boston during the week.

  • Javier C.

    Cafe La France is one of the best sandwich shoppes around, train station or no train station - staff is amazing, and so friendly, ingredients are locally sourced, the whole place is like an oasis.

    Javier Chacin · April 8, 2013
  • Tricia

    Get the mbta app for Android or iOS and you can buy your tickets from your phone. No more worrying about cash.

    Wifi at the station is pretty good, use it there before riding the MBTA where it isn't very useful.

  • Aaron E.

    MBTA had a new app where you can pay with your card and show them that you paid by going to " my tickets" if heading to Boston this feature is not available till end of November... No more waiting
