Just landed a job at MGH and deciding where to live.

Currently leaning towards Waltham/Watertown/Belmont. Looks like the places there seem to be clean and reasonable.

With MGH having subsidized MBTA passes, thinking that it might be good to find a place in that area, take a bus to Harvard, then red line to Charles/MGH?

Any ideas/advice on doing this (feel free to say that this is a bad idea)?

Looking like that it would be from Watertown/Belmont I could do a bus to Harvard and then T to Charles/MGH and from Waltham I'd do a bus to Downtown Crossing and then to Charles/MGH.

That is very doable commute Belmont or Watertown. I think it is bit longer from Waltham. But, I would add Eastern Arlington near Alewife, where is you can swing something you like, you could actually have an easy stroll to T station, and go straight to MGH without needing to worry about parking or transfer. Hope it helps.

The commute from the South is also an option--Quincy, Braintree and South Boston are all along the Red Line, so you wouldn't even have to change lines. Good luck!
