Arriving in Fenway
Inbound from the north:
Follow the station signs for the Green Line and wait at the platform for the next outbound B train to Boston College or C train to Cleveland Circle.
Once on board, ride eight stops to Kenmore, where you’ll depart and exit the station by following signs for Fenway Park. From here, it’s just a short walk to the stadium. Alternatively if timing is tight, you can catch an outbound Framingham/Worcester train to Lansdowne Station from Back Bay.
Inbound from the south:
Depart from Back Bay Station, where you can either enjoy a 25-minute walk or a short ride on the Green Line to the ballpark. If you choose to take the Green Line, walk to the outbound entrance of Copley Station and catch an outbound B, C or D Line train to Kenmore, where you’ll depart and exit the station by following signs for Fenway Park. From here, it’s just a short walk to the stadium.
After arriving at South Station on Commuter Rail, you have a few options. If schedules line up, you can hop on an outbound Framingham/Worcester train and get off at Lansdowne Station, which is just a short walk from the ballpark.
You can also take the subway. From South Station, follow the station signs downstairs to the inbound Red Line train toward Alewife and hop on board when the next train arrives at the platform.
Ride the Red Line two stops to Park Street Station and disembark, following the station signs for the Green Line.
Wait at a Green Line platform for either an outbound B train to Boston College, C train to Cleveland Circle or D train to Reservoir. Avoid taking an E train toward Heath Street, as it splits off from the other Green Line trains at Copley Station.
