Default Haymarket to Lechmere Commute (Green Line)

Hi all,

I am newly graduated and moving to the North End in the summer. I will be living closest to the Haymarket T stop and will need to get off at the Lechmere exit. Does anybody know what is the best way to do this/ about how long it would take? I am entirely new to the city and have never been on the T! Any advice would be appreciated

It's 3 stops so you're looking at about a 10 minute commute tops. Best way is the only way, really: get on a Lechmere-bound train at Haymarket. Get off at Lechmere.

Have you looked at a T map yet?

Yeah, it's super-close. You could walk it in not much more time than the T takes.

I was also going to say that it's totally walkable, unless you aren't physically able (or are carrying a bunch of stuff, etc.). It's about a mile.

seriously, you couldn't look at the MBTA website and figured out the commute? it's so ridiculously straight forward, I'm surprised anyone answered this thread

Thanks for the advice. I had looked at the map just wasn't sure if there was a specific train I had to get on etc. Glad to hear it will be so easy!

Default Haymahhket to Lechemere

On a nice day you can walk from North End , cut through by the TD Garden/North station, through Nashua St. along the park toward the Museum of Science, and then cut through to Lechemere, about a 15 -20 min walk depending on your speed.

On cool days , rain, or night you could take the "T" to Lechemere from Haymarket, Wait on the outbound platform for a Lechemere train

At night it can be a bit of a wait because they frequently have North Station trains, that only stop at North Station, and some Out of Service trains that take no passengers before the Lechemere train comes.


You might look into renting or buying a motor scooter to get around too.

You might look into purchasing a bicycle...could be handy to lock it up or bring it in your house /apartment, and ride it to Lechmere, wouldn't take long at all

A million commuters taking multiple forms of transit to get to work just gnashed their teeth at the same time and didn't know why. That's a dream commute and, as other people have mentioned, you can walk when you feel like it.
