If you are going to a baseball game at Fenway Park, the closest Amtrak station is Boston’s Back Bay Station. Walking time is 25 minutes or connect with the green subway line for a 17-minute commute (view transit directions from Amtrak). However, if you are traveling on the Downeaster, trains stop at Boston’s North Station only. You can transfer to the green line there to reach the stadium.
Things to Know
- Acela Express, Northeast Regional and Lake Shore Limited trains stop at the Back Bay Station (Lake Shore is long-distance train that originates in Chicago)
- The last departing train south towards New York City is 9:30 p.m., so plan to stay overnight if you’re attending an evening game (there are many hotels surrounding the Back Bay Station)
- The last Downeaster train departs at 10:30 p.m.
