I dont see on the MBTA anywhere that estimates how long the train takes to get from one point to another. I am just trying to calculate how long this trip would take.

It's about 15 minutes on the train itself, plus the time walking to and from the train and waiting for the train. From Porter it's 5 stops to Park Street (which is only one block from DTX) and 6 to DTX.

On the MBTA website, it's under the third item in the menu across the top ("Rider Tools"). The top choice when you scroll over that is "Trip Planner." They take into account walk time, wait time, etc.
