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 Cambridge and carry 85,000 riders each working day. Transfers from rapid transit to/from bus are free with a CharlieCard, making it even easier to take transit for your entire trip.

Public transit is critical to making Cambridge a livable and environmentally sustainable city. The ability of our region’s economy to grow depends largely on the efficiency and effectiveness of our transportation system. A well-functioning transportation system with high quality options to get around makes it easier for residents to get access to jobs and opportunity and for companies to find and keep workers with various specialized skills.
