The Association for Public Transportation (APT) has just released the latest edition of their Car-Free in Boston book. The book provides details on how to navigate the city and surrounding areas by T (subway), Amtrak, bus, ferry, foot, and bicycle.
Boston is a notoriously difficult city to navigate by any means. Many of the outdated streets, no more than paved-over cow paths, don’t exactly follow a typical “grid pattern.” Driving in Boston is particularly frustrating and confusing – and this new guide gives you enough information so you won’t need to.
The resources are much more detailed than anything provided by the transit services. The book explains the fare structures for each system, provides schedules and estimated travel times for the network of routes.
Travel writers provide recommendations and descriptions of Eastern Massachusetts attractions accessible by bike or mass transit. If you live in Boston, or plan a trip there, Car-Free in Boston will tell you how to see the area up close and personal, not speeding by through a car windshield.
"We have all been conditioned to just hop in the car and drive," said APT President Fred Moore. "While parking is difficult and car-ownership is costly, mass transit is easy and inexpensive. Yes! You can get there from here–and our handy guidebook makes it easy!"
