Lexington & Concord by Bus, Bike & Train

There's no intercity train service to Lexington, and no intercity bus service to Concord, but you can see both towns in one visit and have an hour's bike ride as part of your day. Here's how...


The Minuteman Bikeway extends from Boston and Cambridge to Lexington, Bedford and, by the Reformatory Branch extension, to Concord.

You can ride the Minuteman Bikeway to Lexington and Concord, then take your bike on an MBTA Commuter Rail train to return to Cambridge and Boston. More...

If you don't have a bike, you can use a Zagster shared bike of the Minuteman Bike Share Network, available in both Lexington and Concord: rent the bike in either town and ride to the other along the Minuteman Bikeway and Reformatory Branch trail (map). More...
