Transit in Cambridge

MBTA red line

You can find plentiful public transportation options -- subway, buses, commuter rail, shuttles, and bike share-- in much of Cambridge. As a result, many Cambridge residents, workers, visitors, and students choose to get around on public transit, walking and biking. Given changes going on in Cambridge like more jobs, smaller families, more single people -- public transit can play an even more critical role for people getting around Cambridge and greater Boston.

Transit initiatives

The City is engaged in a number of studies and projects related to transit within Cambridge and the greater region. Some relevant information is below. You can find information on bus stop locations and amenities, Cambridge projects, MBTA or MassDOT projects, other public shuttle providers, and information on our monthly transit newsletter.
