Beneath South Station are two MBTA subway stations:

Red Line to Cambridge and Harvard Square. More...

Silver Line to the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center and Logan Airport. More...

Many points in Boston's city center are only a few minutes' walk from South Station:

—InterContinental Boston Hotel: 300 yards (250 meters), NE, 2 minutes

Other Commuter Rail lines, and Amtrak's Downeaster train to coastal New Hampshire and Portland, Maine, are served by the smaller North Station, slightly over one mile (1.8 km) to the north of South Station beneath the sports arena variously known as TD Garden/ Boston Garden/ Fleet Center (map).

South Station Bus Terminal has a place where you can leave your luggage for safekeeping during the day so you can explore Boston unburdened for a few hours. More...
