Winners of 5 Super Bowls since 2002, the Patriots play all home games at Gillette Stadium, located in Patriot Place.

Patriot Train from Boston to Gillette Stadium

The  Patriot Train  departs from North Station (next to TD Garden, South Station, and Back Bay Station in Boston (as well as Dedham Corp on Rt 128 and Providence Station in Providence, RI) and takes you directly to Gillette Stadium.  This is by far the easiest way to get to the game because you avoid the hassle of being stuck in traffic when leaving the stadium.

In case you're wondering, the Patriot Train is a special version of Boston's Commuter Rail.   It takes you right to the stadium on a section of tracks only used on game days. 

Getting to Gillette Stadium from Boston on the Patriot Train takes slightly more than an hour.
