Boston has a
neat system known collectively as the "T". If ever in Beantown, leave the car at home.
The streets are confusing and the drivers are insane. The
trains do a good job of getting you where you want to go.
Boston opened the first North American
line in 1897.
This line operates to this day as part of the Green Line light rail system.
The Green Line branch to Riverside, opened in the 1950's, is often called a
pre-cursor to modern Light
Boston maintains 3 heavy rail subway lines,
the Red Line (Cambridge Subway), Orange Line (at one time was the Main Line El) and
Line (Old commuter & Trolley Line converted to metro).
