Wicked Good Guides / Boston for Visitors / Getting here

By train

Amtrak has frequent train service to Boston from New York and other points in the Northeast Corridor. The trip from New York takes about 3 1/2 hours on Acela Express trains, about 4 hours on other trains. There's also twice-daily service between Boston and Chicago.

Note: Amtrak has three Boston stops. Rte. 128 is about 12 miles from downtown and is a good place to get off if you have family or friends in the western or southern suburbs to meet you. Back Bay Station is in the Back Bay, convenient to the Back Bay and the South End (and the Orange Line subway). The final stop is South Station, near the financial district (and the Red Line subway).

Can you tell me how much it would cost to catch the train from New York to Boston pp and how long the journey will take, please?

To all asking questions here about how to get to Boston from wherever, etc...try looking it up somewhere! Stop being so fucking LAZY!

1. Amtrak is only a phone call away.
2. Book a flight and a rental car.
3. Use a MAP (an ancient, yet useful tool made of paper if you've never seen one)!

For all travel and fare info go to http://www.amtrak.com

I checked out a trip in early '08 and from Chicago to Boston (2 people) it starts at $120. Then from Boston to NYC a 4 hr + trip came to $88.00 (again 2 people). Hope this helps.
