Hi there! I am trying to find a way of how to get to Foxboro's Gillette Stadium - Boston from New York on public transportation. Could you please help me? Thanks! - John

Susan's response: Sure, happy to! Getting from New York to Boston by public transportation is easy - you'll find several bus options plus Amtrak described here. Bus fares vary quite a bit according to amenities - generally speaking, you'll pay more if you a) book close to the time of departure and b) want WiFi. Amtrak fares vary based on day/time of departure, and type of service - Acela, being the fastest, costs the most.

Getting to Gillette Stadium from Boston on public transportation is also a great plan because the stadium is about 22 miles south of the city, and considering the cost of gas and then parking once you get there, getting there by train or bus makes a lot of sense - but depending on the event, it can be a little tricky.

The good news is that even though there is no direct regularly scheduled public transportation from Boston to Gillette Stadium, it is indeed possible to get there without a car. Options vary based on the event you're attending.

Getting to Patriots games by public transportation is easy - just take the "Patriots Train" direct from South Station right to Gillette. Occasionally, train service right to the stadium is provided for other big events, especially soccer games - but many Boston locals feel this doesn't happen nearly often enough.

Public transportation to New England Revolution games, concerts, and other events is a bit trickier, but still doable. You'll find several options for getting to Gillette from Boston outlined here.

Hope this helps! Have a great time in Boston!
