How can I go to Gillette Stadium with public transportation ?
I will be visiting Boston from abroad this summer and would like to see the Patriots, can someone help me with directions to the stadium from around South Station T, possibly with the corresponding schedules ? I will not have a car and need to use public transportation.
Many thanks !
Hello, I am still in learning mode here. Thanks in advance for your patience and your advice !
As cordelli pointed out, the commuter rail has a stop right at Gillette. It's literally right there, next to parking lot #1, where the players park (among others). The train waits a while after the game ends to head back to South Station.
Check out the Boston Craigslist for Pats tickets. There's always a ton on there. Find a posting from an actual person selling theirs as opposed to postings that just link you to their website. Granted, you won't have the protection of using one of the fee-based sites, so it that bothers you, you'll have to look elsewhere.
As for the train to the game, it's kinda cool, albeit on the long side for the relatively short distance. It takes just over an hour from South Station and you'll be nearby within a few miles within a half hour. Then the train actually changes direction to go off the main tracks onto an old freight spur and the train literally doesn't go faster then 5-6mph the rest of the way haha.
It was $10 roundtrip last year, no one way tickets which I doubt would be an issue in your case. I've taken it in the past to games when I was late getting out of town for the day and then just drove home with my buddies.
I'd see the train advantage in being leaving the game.
The 1hr ride can easily beat the drive. Rt.1, even with oncoming traffic being reduced to one lane, making five lanes leaving the staduim, can be a parking lot as it merges to either one or two lanes (depending on the days' construction - seems like they've been rebuilding that roundabout for many, many years) as you get on I95.

Stadium Man's link wasn't working for me at the time, ok now.
But the website really doesn't at all answer the question of the thread about getting to Gillette via public transportation, but looks to me as something a new intern at the hotel whose website was linked would try to post in an effort to get the word out about the property.
