Hi, my family lives in the Middleton area on the North Shore. I love the north shore but have accepted a position at Northeastern University in Boston. Are there any places anywhere on the North Shore with a direct route by express bus (private or mbta) or any other method into Ruggles or close to Northeastern, or into Back Bay, Copley, etc.? I know 128 is a nightmare so I don't want to drive (plus I've been living without a snowy commute for awhile). I was looking for a town with an express bus that went to Copley or Ruggles or Back Bay, etc. so that I wouldn't need to do the car to the commuter rail to the orange or green line to work because it'll take forever. Any ideas? Recommendations? It's been 5 years since I've lived in MA so I thought I'd check for advice here. Thanks!

Have you actually viewed where the B&M (T) trains go?
Have you actually viewed where the MBTA goes?
Have you actually viewed where the MBTA busses go?
They got maps on their web sites.

personally, I would look into renting something close to Northeastern and walking (or take a bus for a few stops when weather is bad), but it's just me...

Yes, I have, but I also know that there's nothing like experience from folks who do the commute, vs. how it all looks on paper. Thanks for emailing and I'd love to hear from folks who commute in and what they'd recommend. Can't really afford to live right in town with the in-town rental prices. Thanks for the posts unit 731 and tikaram.

You do not need to take 128 from Middleton. You have access to RTE 1. My wife's co-worker, who lives in Georgetown, commutes by car via RTE 1 to Oak Grove Station (Orange Line) for about 45 minutes. If you want to rent, the new rental complex in Revere (Overlook Ridge) has direct MBTA Bus to Haymarket Station (Orange Line), Wonderland Station (Blue Line), and Malden Center Station (Orange Line). Of course, public school is not anywhere close to Middleton. You have to compromise a little for conveniences I guess.
