Quincy to Wellesley commute using public transportation? Wow!... good luck

I don't think there are any reasonable public transportation to Wellesley unless 2+hr each way is reasonable.

I would try Watertown and if thats not suitable I would go with Quincy and drive to Wellsley. At least you would have the T from both Watertown and Quincy into the city. Although I guess it is a bus from Watertown to Harvard Sq for the T. Boston and its suburbs/exurbs spread out for miles and are very expensive no matter how you try to turn it to your favor. I grew up in the region and miss it but not the outrageous cost of living. Best of Luck.

Don't be a sucker; My sister lives in sommervile within a 10 minute subway ride of the boston habor and Cambridge for.....550 a month! A rate which is competive in rural new england. It's called renting a room out. You could potenitally save 700 dollars a month, which could be used to live more comfortable or save to afford an apartment without the stress of subsitance.

One snafu I need to mention is the T stops service before the bars close in BOS. I can't tell you how many times I had to decide whether I wanted to leave early or stumbled/cab home.

Stumbling home drunk in Boston is one of the greatest experiences anyone can ever have. You never know what's gonna happen. Be it drunk college girls doing unspeakable things, out of town rednecks gay bashing a heterosexual, or a sports oriented riot. But watching people puking all over Boylston is guaranteed though.

Thanks guys. After months of searching I finally found something in my range. It's in the Forest Hills area of Jamaica Plain. Anybody know anything about this place?

I used to live by there. I miss it, great area with a lot of fun people around. The 39 can be a bit unreliable late at night. Well, actually any time you can wait for 25 minutes and then have 3 busses come all at once. You end up save a lot of time taking the train or biking. Be sure to take advantage of the parks near by!

Default Room Share

Have you considered room-sharing? You could cut down your rent that way and have more to be able to explore the city


what abotu Davis Square?
