MBTA red line

Cambridge is well served by rapid transit, with 5 stops on the Red Line (Kendall, Central, Harvard, Porter, Alewife) and one stop on the Green Line (Lechmere), serving over 100,000 riders per day. In addition, 31 bus routes travel in or through Cambridge and carrying 85,000 riders on a regular working day. Transfers from rapid transit to bus are free, making it even easier to take transit for your entire trip.

Public transit is critical to keeping Cambridge a livable city. The ability of our region’s economy to grow depends largely on the efficiency and effectiveness of our transportation system. Well-functioning multi-modal transportation networks make more jobs accessible to residents and labor markets more flexible for companies seeking workers with specialized skills.
