Fitchburg, MA station to AB

Post by mistyhayes88 » Fri Mar 16, 2012 4:50 pm

I'm lost on how to read the train schedule. it says there's an 'inbound' train 'fitchburg to North Station' at 6:47am Friday morning.
It describes the same thing when I go to 'outbound' only it's at a different time.

Is 'Inbound' heading to AB? or 'Outbound'?

Fitchburg is a Commuter Rail station.
Inbound means IN to Boston. Outbound means you are going OUT of Boston.

It's on the Red, Green, Orange, and Blue that it gets tricky. For those, Inbound and Outbound mean going to-from Park Street/Downtown Crossing/State/Government Center.


For you, Fitchburg to AB: Take the train from Fitchburg to North Station, then take the Green line to Hynes. Then just a short walk.
Or, from North Station, you could take the Orange line to Back Bay and use the pedestrian Underpass-Mall-overpass-Mall indoor route over to the convention center (in case the weather isn't so good that day)
